Lecturer, UBD School of Business and Economics



My research interests are focused on developing economies and economic growth using macro-, industrial- and firm-level data. I continue to examine the ASEAN economies, especially with their implementation of the ASEAN Economic Community. It will be interesting to examine whether institutional regional integration can benefit the region. I use econometric methods where applicable.
