My 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
such as the credit derivative market and the secondary loan
market, affects banks' relationships with borrowers. Other research
includes examining the effect of information asymmetries
in the corporate loan market on borrowers'
capital structure. I am also interested in other related topics
in corporate finance, risk management and regulation.
