Professeur Associé

Accounting & Corporate Finance

Themes of research

I study how information frictions affect the fund raising of young, small, and innovative companies, and how social networks mitigate those frictions. I also investigate the increasing trend of private debt funds and their interesting competition with traditional commercial banks in the middle-market lending space.
