Vasco Gabriel graduated in Economics from the Technical University of Lisbon in 1995, where he was awarded the ICEP prize. He received a masters degree in Econometrics in 1998 from the same institution. In 2002, he completed his PhD in Economics at Birkbeck College, University of London. He taught at the University of Minho, Portugal, before being appointed as a Lecturer at the University of Surrey in 2004.

Research interests

Vasco's main field of specialization is Macroeconometrics, focusing on the application of non-linear methods, as well as general inference issues in macro models. His recent grant from the ESRC for work on inference problems in micro-based Phillips curves and policy rules was graded "Outstanding". Vasco is Co-Director of the Centre for International Macroeconomic Studies (CIMS) and a Research Fellow of the Economic Policies Research Unit (NIPE).
