Biliana Alexandrova-Kabadjova

Biliana Alexandrova-Kabadjova has been working at the Banco de México since 1997 and currently she is a payment systems analyst. She is a member of the Mexican National System of Researchers since 2009 and is a Visiting Fellow at the University of Essex. Her main contribution has been to build the most advanced model (in terms of complexity and realism) of the payment card market. Further, in relation to financial market infrastructures, she has developed a framework under which one can learn about how the intraday liquidity flows. Alexandrova-Kabadjova has published several refereed journal papers and book chapters, and has co-edited the books Simulation in Computational Finance and Economics: Tools and Emerging Applications and Analyzing the Economics of Financial Market Infrastructures. She obtained her first degree with honors on Information Systems at the Instituto Tencologico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey, CCM in 1996. She received her Ph.D. in Computational Finance from the CCFEA from the University of Essex, UK in 2007. Her main research interests are in intraday liquidity, network analysis of market infrastructures and in agent-based computational economics.
