Sofonias Alemu Korsaye

I am joining Johns Hopkins Carey Business School as an Assistant Professor of Finance

I hold a PhD in Finance from the Swiss Finance Institute at the University of Geneva. Prior to my PhD studies, I received a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics and a Master's degree in Finance and Banking from the University of Rome Tor Vergata.  My research area includes topics in both Theoretical and Empirical Asset Pricing with a particular focus on 1) understanding the implications of market frictions on asset prices and investors' subjective beliefs and 2) developing machine learning methodologies motivated by Asset Pricing theory.
