Hello! I am an Assistant Professor of Finance at KU Leuven, Faculty of Economics and Business. My main research interest is policy-oriented theoretical banking; my papers focus on aspects of financial stability, regulation, systemic risk, and competition in the banking sector. I also work on research on financing the green transition. I obtained my PhD in Finance from Warwick Business School (UK) in 2018. Before joining academia, I worked as a business consultant in risk management and IT projects in the banking sector.
Portfolio Management (KU Leuven, Campus Brussels)
I teach master's level course in Portfolio Management, to Finance and Banking, and MBA students. The course places a lot of emphasis on intuitive understanding and practical applicability of modern asset pricing theories.
