In Prague, 2014.

Since Fall 2010, I am back in Sofia, BG after 5 years in Prague, CZ. I am now a senior assistant professor of Economics at the University of National and World Economy in Sofia, Bulgaria (UNWE). I got my Economics PhD from the Center for Economic Research and Graduate Education – Economics Institute (CERGE-EI), Prague, Czech Republic. I've got another Ph.D. in Political Economy from the UNWE, and an MA degree in Economics from CERGE-EI. My Economics dissertation title is Empirical Essays on Crises, Reforms and Growth.

You can find the abstract and the thesis itself from here.

Before Prague, I was a researcher at one of the leading Bulgarian analytical think-tanks – the Center for Economic Development (CED) in Sofia, Bulgaria, while at the same time working on my Ph.D. thesis at the UNWE. I defended the Origin and Development of the New Private Property in CEE after 1989 in 2009.

I enjoy making progress with my students and research, still more than my leisure.
