I am an Assistant Professor of Finance at the University of Memphis. My primary interest is in the fields of Market Microstructure and FinTech.

My Market Microstructure research addresess the issues of price fragility, liquidity and efficiency in the markets populated with ultra-fast trading algorithms. My FinTech research explores congestion costs of  blockchain transaction settlement.

Journal of Finance, Journal of Financial Economics and Management Science have recently accepted my papers for publication. My research appeared on the  AFA, WFAEFA and NBER conference programs and has been highlighted by BBC, CNBC and the Wall Street Journal.
