Camilo Botía, PhD

Vita / Resume

I completed my PhD in Financial Economics at Carnegie Mellon University, Tepper School of Business, working under the mentoring of Burton Hollifield. My undergraduate studies are from Universidad de Los Andes, where I majored in Mathematics and Industrial Engineering.

I am broadly interested in financial intermediation and asset pricing. In my papers, I study how financial disclosure policies and the introduction of convertible debt affect the balance of risk-taking and creditors’ incentive to run. I further explore asset pricing implications. The ultimate goal of this research is to contribute on the understanding of how financial crises occur and what policies actually help to reduce the social costs of such crises.
