Her research focuses on the systemic implications of financial regulation, financial market design & dynamics, and climate risk. The areas of research covered in her studies in the field of finance include financial crises, systemic risk, financial stress testing, financial and banking regulation, market ecology models, AI in finance, climate finance, and climate risk. Her recent work has shed light on the system-wide implications of key pillars of the post-crisis (2007-2009) regulatory reform, including Basel III buffers, bail-in, and central clearing. She has also developed novel tools, such as system-wide stress tests, to evaluate systemic effects of policies.
