I have 13 years of experience, and specialize in the field of securitization and financial crises with specific knowledge in the areas of consumer loans, securities valuation and corporate bankruptcy. I have published on such topics as securitization, bank regulation and monetary policy. I have testified 7 times on topics such as firm conditions, class certifications and government policy. My research focuses primarily on investigating liquidity in thinly-traded assets and illiquid market conditions. Current research projects analyze default risk, including both immediate and cross-default risk, and default resolution costs in the contexts of asset-backed securities, defaults, and failures in systemic and non-systemic environments.
