Research Interests

My research interests are in the area of financial engineering and networks, with a special focus on systemic risk, contagion, and control. In the context of financial networks, my research contributes to the understanding of the financial contagion mechanisms and the impact of network topology on systemic losses, and to assess the impact of prescriptive policies for systemic risk.
