Associate Professor, Faculty of Arts - Economics Dept



I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Economics at the University of Alberta. I graduated with a PhD (2005) degree in Economics from the University of Minnesota at Twin Cities and with an MA (1997) degree in Economics from the University of Colorado at Boulder. My undergraduate degree in Engineering is from the Kazakh National Technical University, Kazakhstan. Before coming to Alberta in 2016, I was a researcher at the Bank of Canada.


My general research fields are macroeconomics and monetary economics. I primarily work with general equilibrium models in order to analyze monetary, fiscal and macroprudential policies. 


I have taught economics since 1997 at both the undergraduate and graduate level. My current courses include intermediate macroeconomics, macroeconomic policy, and monetary economics.
