I am a senior economist at the International Monetary Fund's (IMF) Research Department.
My Fund work ranges from empirical to theoretical macroeconomics, mostly dealing with structural policy modeling, model-based analytical support for policy-making, and IMF's Technical Assistance (TA) to central banks on Inflation Targeting and model building. I have contributed to the IMF World Economic Outlook (WEO) and other key products of the Fund (Article-IV analysis, G20 work, G-RAM,...) and participated on joint projects with teams from area departments. I have worked on development of the IMF's global models FSGM and GIMF.
Before joining the IMF RES, I had the opportunity to work and build models with the modeling and analytical teams of the Czech Ministry of Finance, the European Central Bank (NAWM team), and especially at the Czech National Bank. At the bank, I have contributed to the development and implementation of the CNB's core forecasting model of the bank g3 and re-design of the forecasting system of the bank.
Papers, drafts, and code on this site is mostly fun-projects and research out of the regular IMF work projects. As such, it focuses mostly on positive economics and quantitative methods, rather than normative economics...
