Research

In my research, I analyze how asymmetric information, information costs and learning affect optimal portfolio choice and equilibrium asset prices from both theoretical and empirical points of view.

Teaching

I have been deeply involved in the teaching of two courses at our master program in Finance: “Continuous Time Finance” and “Foundations of Finance.” Both of these courses are of a theoretical nature, dealing with portfolio choice and arbitrage and equilibrium pricing. I have also supervised numerous theses at the Bachelor and Master levels and I have been the main supervisor of several PhD students.
