Recent Research Interests
My research interests encompass banking and finance. I empirically investigate the effect of financial crises on the performance of banks and borrowing firms. Banks, with a unique ability to mitigate informational frictions, play an important role in the smooth transfer of funds from depositors to firms. However, this financial intermediation can be disrupted by financial crises, which damage the banks’ financial health and increase informational friction. My research project aims to analyze the mechanism of disintermediation by utilizing micro-data on banks and borrowing firms. I am also interested in the interaction between the banking market and the capital market.
