Name Thesis title Completed
Reginald Kadzutu Impact of Exchange rate regime on the sensitivity of expected return to macro-economic factors in the APT framework Active


My research focus on understanding the instability of financial market by applying complexity theory. I studies the systematic structure of financial systems and is particularly interested in the tipping point of the markets. The approaches include time series analysis on various financial data and agent-based modelling on human behaviours.
