Maryam’s research interests are in areas of Market Microstructure, Islamic finance and corporate finance. Her work in the area of Market Microstructure includes high-frequency trading, market liquidity and trading behaviours and information asymmetry. Her works have a policy relevance on issues related to the role of information asymmetry in trading behaviours and the incentives of market makers to provide liquidity during different markets’ conditions. Her work in Islamic finance covers risk management topics and the impact of profit-sharing investment accounts on shareholders’ wealth and the banks’ market power.
In corporate finance, she is interested in topics related to mergers and acquisitions and the implied cost of capital.
