Keyvan KIANI

Assistant Professor

PhD in Economics

Quantitative Finance & Economics


I am an Assistant Professor at emlyon business school, Quantitative Finance and Economics department, since September 2022. I have been working on financial regulation, bank stress tests and generalized games since the beginning of my PhD in Economics and Finance at the Université of Lille. I spent my doctoral studies at IESEG, where I taught finance and applied mathematics. Prior to my PhD, I was an Ecole Normale Supérieure (Lyon & Ulm) graduate, I obtained a Master's Degree in Probability Theory and Random Models at Sorbonne University, and visited the Operations Research and Financial Engineering department at Princeton. My research interests revolve around banking regulation (to prevent systemic crises), as well as applied game theory.
