Welcome! I am a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Zurich. I defended my PhD dissertation "Finance in the climate crisis: preferences, policies, and prospects" in April 2021.

My research interests and areas of expertise are in corporate finance, financial markets, and climate finance. Before the PhD, I completed an MSc in Economics at the University of Edinburgh (UK) and gained several years of valuable professional experience in corporate governance analysis and responsible investing.

In Fall 2022, I will join the School of Finance of the University of St. Gallen as a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Corporate Finance.
