Vision Statement

My research focuses on the areas of stock market efficiency and behavioural finance. I am especially interested in investigating the theoretical weaknesses of the neoclassical finance paradigm and its possible empirical violations manifested via alternative stock market mispricing phenomena. At the moment, my efforts are concentrated in two distinct areas: i) the quantification of the stakeholder theory and its link to optimal financial decision-making, and, ii) stock market herding behavior.
