Anastassia Fedyk received her B.A. in Mathematics from Princeton University in 2010. Prior to joining the Business Economics program at HBS, she spent two years doing research and portfolio management in the Quantitative Investment Strategies group at Goldman Sachs Asset Management, where she worked on sector-specific signals, statistical arbitrage strategies, and regime-switching models. Anastassia's current research interests lie mostly in Behavioral Economics and Financial Economics. Her work focuses on optimal incentive structures for individuals with time-inconsistent preferences and overconfidence, and the ways in which financial markets react to news. Anastassia also enjoys teaching, and offers an undergraduate course covering different areas of Behavioral Economics and Finance each year. She has been awarded the Harvard University Certificate of Distinction in Teaching three years running.
