PhD ABD in Financial Economics from the University of Cambridge with focus on empirical asset pricing and real estate finance. My doctoral thesis involves credit risk modeling and option-pricing theory with respect to the relationship between house price dynamics and mortgage default. My other research interests include portfolio theory, securitization, derivatives market microstructure and venture capital finance.
Currently, I am a lecturer in finance at UC Davis’ Graduate School of Management and a visiting scholar at Berkeley Haas. I also maintain an affiliation with the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, where I have guest lectured for the executive education program.
The MBA course that I have developed and currently teach is Derivative Securities (MGB/P/T 263). I have also lectured on corporate finance, option pricing and real estate valuation and have worked on a wide range of finance courses for the MBA, Executive MBA and Master of Finance programs at Judge Business School and for the MPhil in Real Estate Finance at the University of Cambridge .
I volunteer as am a member of the executive committee of Berkeley Postdoctoral Entrepreneurial Program (BPEP), which is a non-profit organization that provides tools, mentoring, and a platform for science-business communication to enable research innovations to move into the marketplace.
