1. What is it that you are most passionate about?

Deep fundamentals: from big trends to major inflection points behind them, from investment markets and trading to social environments and institutions.

2. What do you enjoy most about teaching and/or what excites you about being a professor at MIIS?

Expertise

My expertise ranges from identifying thematic trends in global investment markets, to formulating macro strategy and analyzing related risks, from thought leadership to linking theory and empirical fields in finance and economics. I work with institutional and professional investors, traders and asset managers in helping shape investment strategies in the world of macroeconomic uncertainty. I also work with Fintech entrepreneurs to help them develop sustainable and long-term focused growth and financing strategies.

I worked in many settings, from being an entrepreneur to advising entrepreneurs, from leading an equity markets research team to providing investment markets advice and strategy, from a position of though leadership in a major multinational corporation to setting up a non-profit charity. And all along: surviving in a research-active academia, that parallel universe which I joined some 17 years ago.
