Research

My research evolves around the LIBOR/SABR models and the pricing of interest rate-sensitive securities along with fixed income portfolio construction. Satistical arbitrage and the modelling of credit spreads and implied probabilities of default are also of interest. In parallel, I am working on the state of the global market economy and the economics of the Eurozone.
