I am Assistant Professor of Finance at KU Leuven, Faculty of Economics and Business.
I obtained my PhD in Finance from Warwick Business School (UK) in 2019. My main research interest is policy-oriented theoretical banking: aspects of financial stability, regulation, systemic risk, competition in the banking sector, and green finance.
Before joining academia, I worked as a consultant in risk management and IT projects in the banking sector.
