Georgios Magkotsios is a Ph.D. student in finance. His research interests include theoretical and empirical asset pricing. Prior to entering the Ph.D. Program at Marshall, he worked on research projects related to the term structure of interest rates, the distribution of returns from growth and value stocks and market microstructure. He has a strong background in mathematical modeling and computational methods. Georgios holds a Ph.D. in Physics from Notre Dame. His transition from astrophysics to finance stems from the differences in scope between natural and social sciences and the aftermath of the recent global financial crisis.
