My name is David Cimon and I'm a Principal Researcher in the Financial Markets Department at the Bank of Canada. Previously, I was an Assistant Professor of Finance at the Lazaridis School of Business and Economics at Wilfrid Laurier University. I completed my PhD at the University of Toronto.

My research studies financial markets and the impact of regulation. My recent working papers follow a range of topics, including: conflict of interests in financial markets, financial market design, cyber risk, fintech and regulation.

The landscape photos on this website are my own. Most were taken in one of Canada's many National and Provincial Parks.
