Research Interest:

My research interests lie in asset pricing, portfolio management, tail risk and incomplete markets with extensions to violations of normality, asymmetric information and extreme event risk. My current research focuses on how jumps in asset prices affect managerial decisions in funds, proper modelling of heavy tails (stochastic jump-diffusion, Poisson and Hawkes processes) and applications in specific markets and puzzles. Further extensions include the effects of jumps in CDS markets and systemic risk, expansions in incomplete markets and portfolio selection under uncertainty. I am also greatly interested in both the theoretical and applied aspect, as well as micro- and macroeconomic applications of the above. The quantitative methods of choice are Bayesian analysis (MCMC, particle filtering) and GARCH variations (GARCH, TARCH, GARCH-DCC).

Outside the scope of research in Finance, I maintain a long and established interest in Micro- and Macroeconomics, Political Economy, History of Economic Thought, Growth and Development, and I welcome ideas from those areas.
