ABOUT ME

I am a financial economist by training, with special interest in financial intermediation, markets, monetary policy, and corporate finance. I teach finance at Universidad de San Andrés, Argentina, where I also work on a number of research projects.

 

I have always been interested in economic efficiency. In my undergraduate studies I focused on business administration, which gave me a good sense of what pursuing efficiency from a business standpoint was like. My masters’ studies in Rome highlighted the importance of different types of organizations in determining aggregate outcomes. Among them, I felt particularly drawn towards banks.

 

During my Ph.D. studies I devoted significant effort to better understand financial markets and intermediation, their role in the transmission of conventional and unconventional monetary policy and, ultimately, their impact on financing and investment decisions made by non-financial corporations. This is where most of my interests concentrate today.
