truth persuades by teaching, but does not teach by persuading. /Quintus Septimius Tertullianus/

I have been mainly teaching quantitative subjects. I am currently responsible for the PhD level short course in Econometric Modelling (as a part of the course on Research Methods) and Master level courses in Econometric Analysis and Global Economy: Theories and Applications, all delivered at the Vilnius University. 
I also have extensive experience teaching short courses (e.g. summer schools, courses for policymakers, etc). Previously, I have had experience in teaching on different aspects in International Economics (especially, on International Trade), Mathematics and Statistics for Economists, Econometrics (at both, undergraduate and graduate levels) at the University of Cambridge where I also supervised and examined undergraduate (BA) and graduate (MPhil) dissertations in international economics and econometrics, in particular spatial econometrics and heterogeneous dynamic panels.

Introduction to the Theory and Practice of Global Macroeconomic Modelling (Slides - available to participants only)

This is an introductory course to the global econometric modelling, which covers both econometric theory and applications. I base the lectures on the following books: 
  1. M. H. Pesaran (2015): Time Series and Panel Data Econometrics. Oxford University Press. 
  2. di Mauro, F., and M. H. Pesaran (2013): The GVAR Handbook: Structure and Applications of a Macro Model of the Global Economy for Policy Analysis. Oxford University Press.
  3. Garratt, A., K. Lee, M. H. Pesaran, and Y. Shin (2006): Global and National Macroeconometric Modelling: A Long-Run Structural Approach. Oxford University Press.
The course is composed of theory lectures, practical sessions, and theoretical exercises, to be solved during the lectures and discussed with all the participants. Full solutions are available to participants. You can find a full syllabus here.
The structure of a two-weeks course is as follows:
  • The Preview of GVAR Applications
  • Introduction to the VAR modelling
  • Introduction to the Cointegrating VARs
    • Testing of Cointegrating VARs
    • Identification
    • Impulse Responses
