I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Economics at Texas A&M University. I specialize in applied macroeconomics, time series (classical and Bayesian) econometrics, and forecasting.

My current research focuses on identifying monetary policy shocks, monetary policy communication, uncertainty, and their macroeconomic implications. I also work on model selection and evaluation tools in the context of time variation. I have a particular interest in predictive density evaluations.

I am a member of the Society for Nonlinear Dynamics and Econometrics executive committee as a former president, a Board Member of the Armenian Economic Association, and a Research Fellow of the Centre for Economic Policy Research. I also serve as an Associate Department Head at the Department of Economics.

I recently taught ECMT 475, Economic Forecasting for undergraduates, ECMT 674, Economic Forecasting for Master's, and ECMT 638, Applied Time Series Econometrics.
