PhD Candidate
HEC Montreal

Stephane, currently a PhD candidate at HEC Montréal in the financial engineering department, is a member of the GERAD research center and the Canada Research Chair in Risk Management.


Before joining this program, Stephane spent 15 years working alternatively as a tech entrepreneur and as an analyst in the financial industry. It is this background in algorithmic execution and microstructure research, combined with the ever-changing landscape of markets and technologies, which have led to him to focus his research on how algorithmic trading changes the way information is disseminated via prices in the contemporary trading ecosystem.
