Management Studies - Financial Economics (2017 cohort)
I am a DPhil candidate in Management Studies – Financial Economics at Saïd Business School and Pembroke College at the University of Oxford. My research focuses on financial stability at the intersection of macroeconomics and finance. I am interested in the interaction between monetary and macroprudential policy through the bank lending and balance sheet channels. This is the fulcrum of my current research: I explicitly model the decision problem of the central bank in a general equilibrium model with incomplete markets and collateral default. I examine how the effects of a lift-off of the interest rate from the ZLB differ if the central bank considers both monetary and macroprudential policy goals in its objective function. More generally, my research interests include financial crises, banking regulation, macroprudential policy and monetary policy.
Before becoming an ESRC scholar, I obtained an MSc in Financial Economics (Distinction) from the University of Oxford and a BSc in Economics (Cum Laude) from Maastricht University in the Netherlands. I worked in Risk & Regulation at PricewaterhouseCoopers and in the Financial Stability division at Deutsche Bundesbank before coming to Oxford.
