Research overview

I am a first-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Economics.

My current research revolves around “Corporate Failure Prediction in the Energy Sector: A survival Analysis Approach”. My area of research concerns environmental economics, corporate governance, and applied econometrics.

For my future research, is essential to investigate potential spillover effects from the energy sector to the non-energy sector in the U.S.  In other words, analyse if there a spillover of failure risk from the energy sector to other sectors in the economy.
