  • Growth, regional development and business cycles.
  • Labour economics, public finance and evaluation of public policies.
  • International Economics and Macroeconomics modelling.
  • Mathematical and numerical methods (decision theory, risk analysis, optimization) of economics, finance and management science and their theoretical foundations.
  • Statistical methods and Econometrics, including computational statistic and Monte-Carlo simulations, data analysis and forecasting methods, big data sets and high-dimensional models, classification and network analysis.
