Research

My research has been mainly in the area of applied econometrics with emphasis on applications concerning economic growth and financial economics. I believe I have shown a great degree of originality. I have extended the literature in considering the determinants of economic growth (human capital, political instability etc.) and the convergence hypothesis. Also, I have obtained new results with the use of panel data econometric applications in accounting and finance issues.
