About Me

I received my Ph.D. in financial economics with Summa Cum Laude from Swiss Finance Institute, University of Zürich. My research lies in the intersection of asset pricing and macroeconomics. My doctoral research focuses on the interaction between limits of arbitrage in the financial markets and the aggregate economy. I am also interested in derivative pricing, quantitative finance and computational economics.
