Research Overview

My research interest lies in empirical asset pricing covering areas of pricing anomalies, behavioural finance, market microstructure, security analysts, and recently Climate Finance.

In particular, global challenges having economic circumstances, such as the COVID-19 and climate changes, motivate me for the main question of what drives expected returns and how economic agents affect them. Although, I enjoy approaching to the problem empirically, I have still got a strong incentive to follow and provide theoretical suggestions to improve my insight into the mechanism of the market. For instance, while the recent outbreak offers me a playground to test my empirical questions, I am still willing to test theoretical arguments on economic uncertainty heightened with the pandemic. Considering the developments in quantified measures with real data at the various levels, moreover, I enjoy exploiting data in different concepts to show its in practical applications. This leads me to explore how both the rational and behavioural theories affect investment decisions, contributing not only to the relevant literature but also to investors, policymakers, more broadly, to the society.
