ABOUT ME

Ever since my youth the world of economics and capital markets has always fascinated me. As a matter of course, I have started studying economics with a special focus on capital markets and macroeconomics. Trying to link theory with practice, I deepened my knowledge for statistical methodologies and econometrics.
