He also holds a BSc in international economics and law from Dnipropetrovsk State University (Ukraine) and an MA in economics from the National University "Kyiv-Mohyla Academy" (Ukraine).
His research is broadly on international macro-finance, focusing in particular on understanding the patterns of international investments, the effects and explanations of economic integration on macro and micro level, firm productivity, and the linkages between real and financial sectors in open economies. Following recent trends in the literature, he uses micro-level data (i.e., data at the firm level) to answer traditional macroeconomic questions about macroeconomic volatility and co-movement. He is also interested in research on private equity and leveraged buyouts, development economics, and history of globalization.
