Προσωπικό Προφίλ

Andros Kourtellos is an Associate Professor of Economics at the Department of Economics at the University of Cyprus. He is a member of the Inequality: Measurement, Interpretation, and Policy network of the Human Capital and Economic Opportunity Global Working Group (HCEO)of the University of Chicago. He is also a senior fellow of the Rimini Centre for Economic Analysis (RCEA) of the University of Bologna and member of the academic council of the Economic Research Centre (ERC) of the University of Cyprus.

He is currently a EU Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellow working on the Econometrics of the Intergenerational Mobility.

His primary research interests are in the areas of econometrics, inequality, social mobility, economic growth, macroeconomic forecasting. His econometric contributions include both theory and applications using nonlinear models, model averaging methods, and mixed sampling frequencies. He developed estimation and inference for a threshold regression model that allows for an endogenous threshold variable as well as for endogenous regressors. These models are particularly useful for the estimation of multiple equilibria and poverty traps. Recently, he employed this class of models to uncover status traps in the intergenerational mobility process. His work has been published in journals such as Economic Journal, European Economic Review, Journal of Applied Econometrics, Journal of Business and Economic Statistics, and Journal of Econometrics.

Kourtellos earned a B.Sc. in Economics at the University of Cyprus in 1996 and a M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Economics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2001. He held a visiting appointment at Virginia Tech and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
