    Personal Statement

    Having spent most of my working life in risk management and asset management roles in the investment banks SG Warburg, Bankers Trust and Deutsche Bank, I moved into academia in 2006. Following 5 years spent at the University of Manchester, I joined the University of Liverpool Management School where my teaching interests are the global financial markets, asset management, measuring market risk and quantitative topics. In terms of research, I apply econometric / statistical models to the measurement of a financial institution's exposure to market risk (VaR analysis and application of Bayesian models). In July 2018, I was awarded my PhD in Finance and Economics. The title of my PhD thesis is: "Assessing the Impact of Risk Contagion on Value-at-Risk and the Alternative Application of a Bayesian Factor Based Approach."
