ELENA N. ASPAROUHOVA
Welcome to my homepage! I am currently an assistant professor of Finance at the David Eccles School of Business at the University of Utah. I joined the department here after graduating from the Department of Social Sciences at Caltech. My interests are focused mainly in the areas of theoretical and experimental finance. Check out the University of Utah's own experimental cyber lab -- UULEEF. If you have any questions about my research or myself, please email me.
