I am a financial economist in the area of corporate finance, and my research is focused on the financial intermediation between households and institutional investors. Using an evidence-based approach, my research agenda looks to understand the impact that informational and financial frictions have on decisions and outcomes. I answer this question empirically by accessing novel datasets and applying empirical methods from microeconomics to produce convincing and well-identified answers. Further, my work is complemented by theoretical models to provide insights into what may be plausibly driving my results. The ultimate goal of my research is to better understand our economy, identify the important factors that are affecting it, and to guide public policy.

My teaching experience combines both teaching assistantships at Columbia Business School with a diverse corporate training background. My experiences include students from all education levels (undergraduate, MBA, EMBA, PhD), various courses (corporate finance, capital markets, macroeconomics, microeconomics, behavioral finance, household finance), and all parts of the course lifecycle (inception, development, and instruction). I am comfortable and able to teach a broad set of courses in finance and economics. Please click here for my full teaching statement.
