Welcome to my web page. I am an Assistant Professor of Finance at the IESEG School of Management and an Affiliated Research Fellow of the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) in France. I received my PhD in Economics from University of Leuven (KU Leuven) and PhD in Finance from Louvain School of Management (Louvain Academy), Belgium in 2013.
Prior to joining IESEG, I was a Fulbright Scholar at the State University of New York, Binghamton in the U.S. I held visiting research positions at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, Erasmus University Rotterdam, Maastricht University and Columbia University, New York. I obtained my executive-level professional training in Data Science – Big Data Analytics and Machine Learning from MIT and Harvard, respectively, in 2019.
My research focuses on topics in Financial Econometrics, Applied Econometrics, High-Frequency Data Analysis, Volatility Modeling and Tail Risk Measurement. I am recently working on developing econometric methods and quantitative tools to identify the forms of information-driven extreme risk events in financial markets. I study how, when and why these tail-type downside shocks propagate over the business cycles and spread across regions or assets. My research has been published in Journal of Econometrics, Journal of Banking and Finance, Journal of International Money and Finance and Economics Letters, among others.
