More detail needed ? Find me on LinkedIn.

Talk to me about matters in the above mentioned areas of interest/expertise (preferably in English, not French). Voilà some questions I carry around with me these days / potential conversation starters :

  • How do racial and economic segregation interact ?
  • What roles do adaptive volatility expectations have in ABMs of financial markets, and what are the implications for volatility dynamics ?
  • Are recent criticisms on NLLS estimations of log-periodic power laws fundamentally justified, or are the shortcomings mainly due to an inadequate estimation approach ?
  • How can we move beyond the Newton-inspired paradigm in (macro)economics, towards an approach better suited to current and future challenges in economics & society ? (Yes, this is too broad, I know)
  • DNNs in Finance.
  • Evolution of money.
  • Applications of network theory in economics & finance.
  • Cryptos & Blockchain
