Ivan Shaliastovich is the Thomas D. and Barbara C. Stevens Distinguished Chair in Finance and an Associate Professor in the Department of Finance at the Wisconsin School of Business. Ivan’s area of expertise is in asset pricing and financial econometrics. Professor Shaliastovich’s research falls into three main areas: volatility risks, the term structure of interest rates, and investor learning in securities markets. His work in these three areas is tied together by a focus on macroeconomic uncertainty, and how it impacts the economy and financial markets. His work has been published in the Review of Financial Studies, Journal of Finance, Journal of Financial Economics, Mathematical Finance, Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control, and the Journal of Econometrics.

Ivan teaches undergraduate, graduate and Ph.D. students in Finance, with a focus on fixed income courses.

He received his Ph.D. and M.A. in Economics from Duke University, and his B.A. in Economics and Mathematics from the American University in Bulgaria.
