Professor and Head of the Department
My research interest is in the area of Financial Economics and Financial Econometrics. As a researcher in this broad arena, the stock market dynamics, foreign exchange market movement, complexity of financial markets and crisis economics are the few areas that fascinate me most. I am also interested in analysis of green investment, the related risks and the problem of (mis)pricing of green stocks all over the world. Emtional intelligence with its impact on employee productivity and problems of ethical decison making and emotional disengagement in work places are few areas that I am exploring over the last four years. Apart from teaching different areas of financial economics and quantitative finance, I like to teach courses on International Economics and open economiy macro ecomomics.
