I hold a PhD degree focusing primarily on European financial regulation that can incorporate the behavioural biases of retail investors in an endeavour to mobilise their participation in the financial markets; increasing retail savings and deepening the markets simultaneously.
Extensive interest in banking resolution regulation with recent papers and publications focusing on this area.
Main general interests: Financial regulation; Capital Markets Law; Banking Law; Resolution Law; Insolvency; Corporate Finance; Equity and Trusts
Having started to be interested in the field of finance within law early on from my undergraduate years with courses in Finance law and Equity and Trusts, I proceeded to do an LLM in International Banking Law and Finance at the University of Edinburgh focusing on the law, the economics and the politics of financial regulation, as well as the more practical corporate finance and banking aspects of Financial Law. Having been fascinated by the intricacies and interconnections that this field has with other disciplines, I then moved on to specialise further in this area by choosing to undertake a PhD in Financial Regulation in which I intend to evaluate financial regulation directed towards retail investors from a psychological-economic (moral) perspective – keeping always in mind the relevance with practical ongoing policy concerns, such as savings, deepening the capital markets at a Pan-European scale etc.
