Current Activity:

I am currently involved in three research projects funded by the Institute for New Economic Thinking in New York, the MOE (Ministry of Education in China) Project of Humanities and Social Sciences and the National Social Science Foundation.

I’m a Postdoctoral Researcher in at the Kemmy Business School, University of Limerick. I hold a Master in Financial Mathematics from University of Warwick (UK), and I was carrying out research on topic "Correlations and Linkages in Credit Risk – An Investigation of the Credit Default Swap Market During the Turmoil" leading to the degree of PhD in University of St Andrews (UK). I am currently working on an attempt to understand debt and demography in the European Periphery on areas as diverse as sovereign debt modelling, pension policy reform, debt restructuring, the relation between assets and income, inter- and intra- generational inequality and the structure of social relations.


How do we learn from the global financial crisis?

What models can be developed to better understand future growth in the EU as people within the EU age?

What is the relationship between debt, and demography?

How can we design policies taking aging and indebtedness into account?
