Dr Nadia Benbouzid BA, MSc, PhD

Senior Lecturer

Nadia has obtained her PhD in Banking and Finance, from Queen Mary University of London. She has previously gained an MSc in Banking and International Finance from Cass Business School, City University. In addition, she holds a BA in Banking and Financial Economics from London Metropolitan University. Nadia won a number of merit scholarships during her studies for excellent academic performance.

Nadia's research focuses on credit risk in the banking sector; more specifically she investigates the determinants of CDS spreads before, during and after the financial crisis. Her research incorporates both macro- and bank-level drivers of credit risk in developed and emerging markets. She also addresses the impact of financial stability, market efficiency and financial development on CDS spreads. Her recent work uncovers an important link between the housing market and bank credit risk. Nadia is currently interested in analysing the impact of Basel 3 on Financial Stability. She has previously taught Financial Management at Queen Mary University of London. She is currently a Senior Lecturer at the University of Greenwich; she has also taught a number of courses at UoG's partner institution IIFE in Hanoi, Vietnam, in 2015.
