I study financial institutions’ and markets’ impact on prices and allocative efficiency.
Real anomalies - the aggregate real effects of financial market anomalies (alphas).
Venture capital investments' impact on economic growth and welfare.
The role of intermediation chains, disclosure, and security design in affecting the efficiency of over-the-counter (OTC) markets.
How the desirability of information production shapes the relative efficiency of OTC and centralized markets.
Regulations' impact on credit rating agencies' rating standards and the allocation of credit.
Large shareholders' influence on inefficiencies associated with financial distress.
The cross-sectional sensitivity of credit to shocks affecting bank capital.

Capital investment with adjustment costs and occasionally binding constraints
Granular general equilibrium economies with persistent heterogeneity
