Max Weber alumnus

Department of Economics

Cohort(s): 2012/2013

Ph.D. Institution

Charles University, Czech Republic


I am expecting to receive my PhD from the Center of Economics Research and Education (CERGE-EI), Charles University, Prague.
My research interests are in the field of economic theory where game theory and finance interact. My future job market paper focuses on reputation building in financial markets, and that is the major direction of my research interests.
Another direction for my research interests is in industrial organization (endogenous sunk cost model) where I focus on a market concentration model with R&D spillovers. I also work on the empirical project, which evaluates the effect of authority delegation, inside the organization, on the quality of decisions taken.
My main research interests are in the area of reputation building in financial markets. To be more precise, I analyse optimal non-contractual risk-taking by banks in loan securitization contracts, and demonstrate that the price of securitised loans partially depends on the non-contractual support the bank is expected to provide.
Starting from the Fall semester of the academic year 2011-2012, I took the position of lecturer at the Anglo-American University (Prague, Czech Republic). I taught Introductory Microeconomics courses for undergraduate students and was responsible for preparing and giving lectures and practical sessions, evaluating students based on exams, homework, in-class short tests, semester project, and class participation.
