About me

I had submitted my thesis under the supervision of Professor Söhnke M. Bartram and Professor Anthony Garratt. I successfully defended the thesis in front of Professor Philippe Mueller of Warwick Business School and Professor Nikolai Roussanov of The Wharton School.

In summer 2019 the Senate of the University of Warwick resolved that I be awarded a Doctor of Philosophy in Finance.

I have been joining the central bank of Indonesia since early 2019, contributing the expertise I gained during the PhD training to shape the monetary policy in an emerging market.

Working Paper

Bartram, S. M., Djuranovik, L. and Garratt, A. (2019). Currency Anomalies

This paper studies widely used investment strategies in currency markets, commonly referred to as currency anomalies. It sets itself apart from a developing literature in the area by exploring behavioral bias of currency anomalies. Using real-time data for a comprehensive set of currencies and anomaly strategies, we provide evidence supporting behavioral explanations for currency anomalies, as opposed to them being the result of data mining or capturing risk premia.
