Wednesday, November 15, 2023 - 16:00 to 18:00


In order to obtain the PhD degree, Oguzhan Cepni has submitted his thesis entitled:

Essays in Applied Financial Economics

This thesis examines the various factors that influence inflation rates and housing markets across different regions. It does so by focusing on three different aspects: the impact of global factors on inflation rates in European emerging market economies, the role of housing sentiment in predicting house-price growth at the state-level in the US, and the influence of housing media attention on future house prices in the US. The thesis consists of three independent chapters that explore these topics, each offering unique insights into the determinants of inflation and housing market dynamics.

The thesis will be available from
