May Bunsupha is a Ph.D. candidate in Economics at Harvard University. Her interests lie at the intersection of macroeconomics, financial economics, and international economics.

Her current projects include the study of how different degrees of financial friction in each country affect the way risk propagates globally via real and financial linkages; the demand-based asset pricing approach to the study of equity term structure; and  the study of exchange rate markets dynamics via the lens of behavioral biases.

May is originally from Thailand. She earned a bachelor's degree in mathematics and another in mathematical and computational science as well as an M.S. in Financial Mathematics from Stanford University. Prior to her doctoral studies, she worked as an equity derivative trader at J.P. Morgan in Hong Kong for three years.
