My main research interests lie in the fields of financial constraints, banking, and firms’ activities (investment, hiring decisions, R&D, innovation, internationalization, etc). I am currently examining the effects of banks' financial market volatility on the real decisions of their client companies. My future research plans are to provide evidence on the links among expectations, rollover-risk, and bank-debt issuance during the financial and sovereign-debt crises.
