My primary research interests lie in banking, financial crises and corporate finance. In my job market paper, I analyze how corporate financial policy is shaped by the interaction between risk shifting and signaling. The key result of the paper is that not engaging in risk shifting can be a credible signal of firm quality. In other work, I consider how
liquidity creation by banks affects financial stability, and what
policy makers can do to contain the risk of financial crises.
I am on the job market in the academic year of 2016-2017 and will be available for interviews at the ASSA Annual Meeting in Chicago, Spanish Economic Association Job Market in Bilbao and the RES PhD Meetings in London.
