Naz Koont

Welcome! I am a PhD candidate in Finance at Columbia Business School.

I am on the 2023-2024 academic job market.

My research agenda focuses on how technology and the emergence of nonbank intermediaries are changing the banking landscape, and the implications for financial stability, competition, and consumer welfare. I enjoy combining novel data sets, empirical analysis, and tools from IO in order to shed light on under-explored dimensions of financial intermediation.

Prior to my doctoral studies at Columbia, in 2018 I received an Honors BSc in Economics and Mathematics from the University of Toronto with high distinction.
