Xuan started his doctorate in Financial Economics in October 2015.

Under the supervision of Dimitrios Tsomocos and Oren Sussman, Xuan’s research focuses on international finance and macro-finance, more specifically the interplay between credit, money, and financial stability. In one of his projects, he builds a dynamic model to incorporate credit, money, and financial fragility and model intermediary asset pricing with financial stability risks. In another joint paper, he builds a macro-finance model based on deposit issuance via bank loans and investigates the possible policy perils at the Zero Lower Bound to the real economy. Alongside these two projects, Xuan is also working on the sustainability of currency union via the lens of financial intermediation.

Xuan’s studies are funded by the Clarendon Scholarship and Saïd Foundation Scholarship. Xuan is a member of Exeter College and a lecturer in Economics at Magdalen College, University of Oxford. Xuan is also a peer supporter as part of the university welfare team.

Prior to his PhD, Xuan worked as an economist at the Bank of England. Xuan received his MPhil in Economics with Distinction from the University of Oxford.
