About Me

I’m a Ph.D candidate of Joint Program in Financial Economics at Booth School of Business and Department of Economics, University of Chicago.

I do research on corporate finance, banking, international finance and applied macroeconomics. Many of my research investigates how various forms of frictions/incompleteness in financial markets and contracting translate into real economic outcomes, both theoretically and empirically.

My job market paper, “Optimal Banking System for Private Money Creation”, studies how should the banking system be designed under a setting where markets and contracts are incomplete, to most efficiently create the private money in an economy—the bank deposits, which need to be made both liquid and safe.

I am currently on the job market and will be available for interviews at the 2020 ASSA meeting in San Diego.
