Personal profile

Research interests

I am currently particularly interested in 1) development of new techniques for valuing derivatives, an area where my research group members and I already have papers published and 2) development and empirical testing of structural bond default models, a related area involving the financial mathematics of option pricing. For a wider view of my research, please see the list of published papers, below.
