Research Interests

Asset pricing / Macro-finance / Corporate finance / Sovereign credit risk / Fintech

My research is at the juncture of asset pricing, corporate finance, and macro-finance. Current interests are oriented toward developing theoretical and empirical approaches to demonstrate how incorporating changes in macroeconomic conditions (also labeled long-run risk as opposed to the contemporaneous shocks of the CAPM-type of risk) can improve our understanding of issues in asset pricing and corporate finance (CV).
