My primary research interests lie in financial intermediation, macro-finance and applied theory. In current work, I analyze how liquidity creation by banks interacts with financial stability, and what policy makers can do to stem the risk of financial crises. I am also interested in whether alternative financial intermediaries, such as closed-end mutual funds, can create liquidity without adverse effects on financial stability.
