The aim and objectives of the Finance, Economics and Econometrics Research Lab are:

  • To publish papers in leading academic journals.
  • To make significant contributions to research in both empirical and theoretical modeling of corporate finance, asset pricing, market microstructure, industrial organization and environmental economics.
  • To develop collaborations with researchers from other departments and institutions.
  • To encourage links between the academic and practitioners communities.

Our Research Lab hosts doctoral and post-doctoral researchers and organizes a seminar series with both visiting and internal speakers and international conferences.
