Bayesian model averaging in R
The BMS homepage


This is Martin Feldkircher's homepage. I am a prinicipal economist at the Foreign Research Division of the Oesterreichische Nationalbank (OeNB). My main responsibilities are business cycle and macrofinancial analyses of Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe (CESEE). My academic research is in the field of empirical international macroeconomics, global multi-country models, forecasting, and aspects of the global financial crisis. In most of my papers I use Bayesian methods for estimation. Regarding my educational background, I have graduated from the Program in Economics, Institute for Advanced Studies in Vienna in 2007 and have completed my PhD thesis on Bayesian Model Averaging at the University of Innsbruck in 2011. In 2017, I have received a venia docendi from the department of economics at the Vienna University of Business and Economics (WU Wien). According to , I rank among the top 10 Austrian economists (based on publications over the last 10 years). I have co-authored the R library BMS for Bayesian model averaging. A detailed CV can be downloaded here. This page should provide an overview of my academic work and current research projects.
