Teaching

I have lectured EPAS-accredited finance courses in the University's undergraduate and post-graduate programs since 2005. I supervise doctoral dissertations as well as master's and bachelor's theses. I also lecture at the University of Tampere's School of Management.

Research

My research focuses on financial markets, with special emphasis on derivative instruments and the relation between market prices and information. I have also conducted research on stock, bond, electricity, and science markets and monetary policy. My research has been awarded (I in Finnish, IIIII).

I currently investigate whether bank option prices can be used to assess financial sector conditions in real time. This is a two-year project funded by the OP-Pohjola Research Foundation.
