Research interests

1 Research Interests

Building on my economics training, my research contributions are mainly in empirical corporate finance and governance, and banking. My portfolio develops four main areas of interest that explore how investment and financial decisions are affected by: 1) shareholders' and managerial incentives; 2) financial contracting; 3) how the two types of decisions ineract in the presence of financial constraints; and 4) how public and private firms differ in their corporate policies and risk and retun.
