I am educated at Brown University (Ph.D., M.A. in Economics) and the University of Copenhagen (B.A. in Economics). Before joining BI Norwegian Business School, I was at the Financial Markets Group at the London School of Economics. I have also spent time at the research division at the Central Bank of Norway and at the University of Salerno. I am an associated researcher at the Centre for Corporate Governance Research (CCGR).
My primary areas of interest are banking and corporate governance.
The main research question that I have considered concerns the real effects of bank shocks and bank market integration on outcome variables such as bank lending to small businesses, firm investment and cash management, and inter-regional risk sharing. I have also done work on shareholder activism and how social capital sustain the viability of the savings bank organizational form.
Currently, Im working on governance in Norwegian industrial corporations in the early 20th century and on entrepreneurial firms. My work has been published in the Journal of Finance, the Review of Financial Studies, the Review of Finance, and the Journal of Political Economy.
