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 a member of the academic council of the Economic Research Centre (ERC) of the University of Cyprus.

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

His primary research interests are in the areas of econometrics, intergenerational mobility, social interactions, economic growth, macroeconomic forecasting. His econometric contributions include both theory and applications using nonlinear models, spatial econometrics, model averaging methods, and mixed sampling frequencies.  He developed estimation and inference for a threshold regression model that allows for an endogenous threshold variable and a model that allows for threshold social interaction effects. These models are particularly useful for the estimation of multiple equilibria and poverty traps. Recently, he has 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 an M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Economics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2001. He held visiting appointments at Virginia Tech and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
