Victor Duarte is a Ph.D. candidate in financial economics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Sloan School of Management. His research interests include financial intermediation, market microstructure, and the intersection of asset pricing and corporate finance.

His current research studies the impact of price and wage rigidities on capital structure in a general equilibrium setting. In another project, he is working on the development of numerical methods to efficiently solve large non-linear dynamical stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) models.
