Financial Econometrics Workshop

The financial econometrics group at Duke has a regular workshop (Monday, 11:40am-1pm, Social Science 111). Students that are interested in financial econometrics and empirical asset pricing are encouraged to participate. We encourage 2nd-year Ph.D. students to start research early and present their preliminary research here.

We also welcome outside speakers to present their research.

Please contact me to schedule a presentation.
