I am a Ph.D. Candidate at New York University, Stern School of Business. My research interests include financial intermediation, central bank interventions, and the link between sovereign and banks’ credit risk.
I am currently studying the role of domestic banks as buyers of last resort for risky government debt and its general equilibrium and international risk-sharing implications. A second portion of my research asks how central bank interventions affect banks’ capitalization, lending to the non-financial corporate sector, and supply of mortgages in the periphery of the Eurozone.
I received a Bachelor in Economics from Bocconi University and a Master in Finance and Economics from London School of Economics. I am also a Macro Financial Modeling Group (MFM) Fellowship Awardee.
