I am a recent PhD graduate in Economics of the George Washington University (GWU). My research interests are macroeconometric modeling, forecasting and policy analysis in emerging small open resource rich economies. My research has been presented at academic conferences in the United States, Europe and the Caribbean. I have been an affiliate of the GWU Research Program on Forecasting since 2012. I have lectured undergraduate courses in Macroeconomics at the GWU economics department and graduate Macroeconomics at the GWU Elliott School of International Affairs. My professional experience includes serving as an economic consultant to the Internation Finance Corporation, the the Inter-American Development Bank, Finance Ministries in Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago, and private corporations. My technical experience includes, inter alia, statistical modeling, econometric modeling and forecasting, macroeconomic policy research and analysis, and economic development impact modeling and evaluation.
