And congrats to our Teaching Assistants (TAs) who were honored with teaching awards this year. We hosted a brunch for our doctoral candidates. The “Market Design: High-Frequency Trading” workshop featured opening remarks by Sayee Srinivasan. Joining him were economists and market experts from UC Santa Cruz and other universities to discuss volatility in financial markets. The CAFIN Workshop “Systemic Risk: Networks and Bubbles” brought together academics and policymakers from across the country to University of California, Santa Cruz. The workshop featured presentations by prominent academics and policymakers, and touched on all three of CAFIN's main themes: market design, systemic risk, and financial access.
