Research Secretary: Solveig Nygaard Sørensen

Education: PhD
Position: Professor

Kim Christensen acquired his PhD from Aarhus School of Business, Aarhus University in 2007. His research interests include financial econometrics, particularly the modelling of financial markets volatility using high-frequency data (intraday transaction and quotation data). He has published his work in a number of leading field journals, including Journal of Econometrics and Journal of Financial Economics. He has previously held a position as an inflation-linked derivatives trader in Nordea, Copenhagen. He is the 2011 and 2019 winner of the Golden Pointer (Lecturer of the year prize awarded for teaching excellence) based on his lecture series in Statistics.
