Research interests

Raslan’s research interests include the area of the impact of macroeconomic indicators on household financial decisions.

Currently, I am working on the area of the impact of natural disasters on household’s financial decision making and the impact of liquidity constraints on household financial portfolio allocations in the presence of background risks.

My PhD focused on risk in financial institutions and households from an empirical perspective.

Specifically, at the macroeconomic level, my thesis examined the link between monetary policy and banks' appetite for risk in the US; whilst at the microeconomic level, it explored the determinants of the household’s financial portfolio allocations; and also examined the determinants of risk attitudes with focus on the impact of experiencing natural disasters on individuals' attitudes towards risk.
