About

I am currently an Assistant Professor of Finance in the Lazaridis School of Business and Economics at Wilfrid Laurier University. My research focuses primarily on theoretical modelling of issues in market microstructure, with a particular interest in problems of asymmetric information. My current work analyses the theoretical impact of recent innovations to equity markets: dark pools, maker-taker fees, and high-frequency trading.
