I am an Associate Professor of Finance at the University of Toronto. I started my career at UofT in 2003 at the Economics Department, and since July 2015, I am with the Department of Management at UTM, the Institute of Management and Innovation (IMI) and the Rotman School of Management. I'm also currently serving as the Director of Research at the Rotman Financial Innovation Hub in Advanced Analytics (FinHub). I spent the 2014-2015 academic year in Wonderful Copenhagen as a Visiting Professor of Finance at Copenhagen Business School. My research is in financial market structure and, more recently, in FinTech. I working to gain a better understanding how technological innovations such as blockchain technology or high-frequency algorithmic trading affect financial markets. My research is both theoretical and empirical.

I have published and forthcoming papers in a wide range of economics and finance journals, including Econometrica, the Journal of Finance, the Journal of Financial Economics, and the Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis. I have previously served as co-director of UofT's Master in Financial Economics program, and I am the Associate Chair of the Department of Management. My PhD (in Economics) is from Cambridge University, and I did my undergrad (in mathematical economics) at Bielefeld University.
