About me

I am a PhD candidate in Finance at HEC Paris. My primary fields of research are mutual funds and market microstructure. Specifically, I am interested in securities lending, short selling, and mutual fund investments, with a focus on information transmission in the financial markets.

I will attend the European Job Market for Economists in Rotterdam on 18-19 December 2019 as well as the AFA/ASSA meetings in San Diego on 3-5 January 2020.
