I am a Researcher at the Centre de Recerca en Economia International (CREi).
My research focuses on topics related to information asymmetries and their impact on financial markets and the real economy. I am interested in factors that lead to information and belief heterogeneity, on how these factors may impact incentives of market players to screen and monitor assets, and on the study of regulatory policies to increase liquidity and discipline in markets.
Before joining CREi, I was an Assistant Professor of Finance at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. I earned my PhD in Economics from UC Berkeley, and I have a Masters in Finance and a B.A. in Economics from Universidad Torcuato Di Tella, in Argentina, where I am from. Before my PhD, I spent two years as a Junior Professional Associate at the World Bank.
I am also a Research Affiliate at CEPR, an Affiliated Professor at the Barcelona GSE, an Associate Editor at Management Science, and a member of the Editorial Board at The Review of Economic Studies (starting January 2021).
