Oscar SoonsUniversity of Amsterdam
I am a PhD candidate in the Finance Group of the University of Amsterdam. My main research interest is the economics of monetary unification. Currently, I am working on a paper in which I study the equilibrium consequences of introducing a common safe asset in a diverse monetary union subject to a global shortage of safe assets. Before starting my PhD, I obtained my MPhil in economics at the Tinbergen institute in Amsterdam, and my bachelor’s degree from the University of Rhode Island (USA).
