In this role he has created and implemented strategic tools to improve the quality of economic regulation. Regarding the management of this Agency, he has designed a new structure that should provide more effectiveness and sustainability of this organization.

Simultaneously, he is also an Executive Director of a Social Housing Agency.

His areas of interest include policy effectiveness and dynamics of markets in network industries. Since he started as an expert in the Regulatory Body, he has been dedicated to European cooperation.
