Mehdi's research focuses on the area of banking, with a particular interest in understanding the role of banks in preventing suboptimal decisions by borrowers' managers. Recent research projects include examining how banks' access to credit risk transfer (CRT) markets, such as the credit derivative market and the secondary loan market, affects banks' relationships with borrowers. Other research includes examining the effect of search frictions and information asymmetries in the corporate loan market on borrowers' capital structure. He is also interested in other related topics in corporate finance, risk management and regulation.
