  • BSc, MSc(London)

My main research interest is in arbitrage-free asset pricing models and I have recently been using these to model long term consumption and investment decisions and the valuation of distressed assets. I also work on issues in macro-finance, financial risk management and financial regulation. I am currently working on the following topics:

  • Long-term consumption and investment optimisation
  • Macro-finance models of international spillovers and the exchange rate
  • Default risk in the inter-bank market
