Prof. Elham Saeidinezhad is a Term Assistant Professor of Economics at Barnard College, Columbia University. She also teaches "The Financial System (Modern Money and Banking)" in the Economics Department at NYU Stern. In addition to her teaching commitments, Elham is a "Market Structure Research Fellow" at Jain Family Institute. In this fellowship, she extensively examines the research by major financial institutions, cuts through the noises to identify the shifts in market microstructures, and analyzes their financial stability implications. She will also write a monthly column on Market Microstructure topics for the Phenomenal World publication.

Previously, Elham taught at UCLA and served as a research economist in the "International Finance and Macroeconomics" research group at Milken Institute, Santa Monica, California. At Milken Institute, she investigated the post-GFC structural changes in the capital market and market-based finance ecosystem due to macroprudential regulations. Before that, she was a post-doctoral fellow at INET, studying "Money View," a framework that examines modern financial systems based on the models of market microstructure. The central focus of the framework is liquidity.
