Yiyao Wang


I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in the joint program of Financial Economics, in the Booth School of Business and the University of Chicago. My primary research interests are financial intermediation, financial crises, corporate finance, and financial markets.

I will be on the job market for the year 2019 and available for interviews at the 2019 ASSA/AEA/AFA meetings at Atlanta, GA.

My job market paper, Counterparty Risk and Repo Runs, highlights the concern about counterparty default as a source of fragility in repo and other collateralized debt markets.
