Research overview

Fei’s research focuses on systemic risk in financial markets. Since the global financial crisis, it has been central to global and domestic regulatory and supervisory bodies to identify the source of systemic risk and its various patterns of contagion and amplification. Fei’s research seeks to contribute to the voluminous literature on empirically modelling systemic risk. Fei’s research interests also extend to topics on banking, commodity markets and corporate finance.
