I am an Assistant Professor of Finance in HEC Paris. Before joining HEC in 2014 I spent two wonderful years at the ECB in the Financial Research Division.

In my research I study how financial institutions and frictions impact the functioning of financial markets, the formation of prices and the allocation of resources and risks in the economy. I focus particularly on the microeconomics of banking and financial markets microstructure, but am interested more generally in financial and applied microeconomics.
