Personal profile

Research interests

My primary research focuses on studying implementation and consequences of regulation, issues of the pension industry with a focus on pension reforms, pension funds’ performance and asset allocation, and impact of pension reforms on the development of financial markets. I also research on corporate governance (managerial incentives, board issues, capital and ownership structure), corporate finance (privatisation, valuation and performance of initial public offerings, modelling and estimation of market risk) and issues of emerging markets (development, investment opportunities, integration and efficiency).

Willing to supervise doctoral students
