Personal profile

Research interests

My research topics include Banking and Financial Networks, Financial Stability and Systemic Risk, Credit Derivatives and Securitization, High Frequency Finance and Real Time Trading Algorithms. I am currently involved in developing ICT Financial Solutions for Financial Contagion (Derivatives Markets and Interbank Lending), Large Value Payment Systems and Electronic Stock Exchange Trading Platforms and teaching across many areas of financial economics including financial markets, international and quantitative finance.
I have previously held positions at the Bank of England, carrying out research on Large Value Payment Systems, and the University of Essex, working on an EU Project on Credit Risk Transfer and the building of a financial contagion simulator for the Credit Default Swap market for US banks. I am currently acting as research advisor for the Reserve Bank of India, Financial Stability Division developing (with Sheri Markose) an ICT modelling tool for systemic risk using Financial Networks. I am also involved (with Sheri and Azeem Malik) in the development of the real time rebuild of the London Stock Exchange Electronic Order Book market which is used in the lab training for students and back testing of intraday strategies.
I am co-founder of the project – Agent-Based Computational Economics & Financial Modelling
