I am assistant professor in Quantitative Finance at the Erasmus School of Economics at the Erasmus University Rotterdam.
Before my current position, I completed two post-doctoral positions. During 2015-2016, I was a Finance post-doc at the the VU University Amsterdam, where I worked with Andre Lucas on time-series econometrics and GAS models to filter unobserved components. During 2013-2015, I worked on similar topics with Professor Harvey in Cambridge, where they are known as DCS models.
I completed my PhD in Operations Research at the Cambridge Judge Business School in 2012. Before that, I completed a Master’s degree (Part III) at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP) at the University of Cambridge. My research interests stretch from the more pure to the more applied:
- Financial time series, time-varying volatility, DCS models, heavy tails
- Continuous-time finance (Brownian motion, stochastic calculus, American option valuation, Bayesian updating, real options, multidimensional optimal stopping, parallel investment in alternatives)
- Theoretical physics/applied mathematics (path integrals with boundary conditions, Feynman-Kac functionals, the Laplacian of the indicator, potential theory, distribution theory)
- Energy policy (how to determine optimally receding subsidies for renewable energy / optimal path of carbon emissions over the next century)
My academic affiliations are as follows:
- Erasmus School of Economics, Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam
- Previously: Faculty of Economics and Business, VU Amsterdam, of Faculty of Economics and Business, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam
- Previously: Faculty of Economics, Cambridge
- Previously: Cambridge Judge Business School
- Previously: Electricity Policy Research Group
