Chair, Faculty of Arts - Economics Dept
I hold the position of Associate Professor with tenure in the Department of Economics. I have Italian as well as Canadian citizenship and have two children.
I earned an Italian Doctoral degree in Mathematical Finance in 2002 from the University of Brescia (Italy). In 2003, I gained a Master's degree at the Krannert School of Management at Purdue University. Two years later, I earned a Doctorate in Economics, with a concentration in Financial Economics at the same institution. That same year, I joined the University of Alberta.
My early research contributions, stemming from my doctoral work, are in the field of General Equilibrium in asset markets for infinite-dimensional spaces (Lp spaces). My current main focus of research is information diffusion in the corporate bond market, value and momentum investing, and securities taxation.
Since 2015, I have maintained an outreach research agenda with ATB Financial (a local financial institution) on credit risk management.
