In securities matters, Dr. Nguyen has an extensive understanding of equity markets, as well as experience in applying statistical tools to analyze large financial datasets.

Dr. Nguyen has led several teams supporting experts examining market efficiency, materiality issues and loss causation, and estimating the quantum of damages in shareholder class action disputes.
