Preview of my Research

  • In my job market paper I document evidence that firms price the instability of the lender in loan commitment contracts (i.e. credit line).
  • In my paper on contingent convertible bonds (CoCos), we model how CoCos distort shareholder incentives (specifically via debt overhang) and demonstrate, with empirical support, how those distortions vary with bank risk.
  • In my third paper, we model the loss provisioning policies of banks and demonstrate how forward looking policies can actually increase procyclicality of lending.
