Contribution to Enterprise
I have worked extensively with Policy Markers as part of the the FOC and CRISIS EU funded projects. I have been awarded a Lamfalussy fellowship by the European Central Bank to work on a research project on security lending. I have visited the Bank of England, Markets, Sectors and Interlinkages Division, London, UK as a research expert to advice on some of their research projects. I have consulted for Aviva and for the Union des Assurance de Paris. I have been awarded a “Richard Goodwin” fellowship (€11,000) by the Monte dei Paschi Foundation to deliver a workshop on Pricing and Hedging of Derivative Securities.
