Dr. Vodenska’s research focuses on sustainability in finance and macroeconomics. She conducts theoretical and empirical interdisciplinary research using quantitative approaches for modeling interdependences of financial networks and systemic risk, including environmental considerations, given that climate change has become an increasingly significant risk factor for the global economy. Her research includes investigating the propagation of climate disinformation via social networks such as Twitter and understanding the distortion’s effect on the public, governance, and policy. She studies the impact of media reporting on Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) concerns on corporate sustainability. She uses AI-powered tools, including natural language processing (NLP) and Large Language Models (LLMs), to text-mine and understand crucial ESG factors affecting company performance and risk, corporate reporting, and global economic trends, primarily related to climate change and social responsibility. Professor Vodenska holds a Ph.D. in statistical finance and an MA in economics from Boston University, an MBA from Owen Graduate School of Management at Vanderbilt University, and a BS in computer information systems from the University of Belgrade. She is also a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) charter holder. In 2023, Dr. Vodenska won a National Science Foundation (NSF) research grant to explore AI-powered ESG solutions.
