My research interests are in the fields of corporate finance and financial intermediation with special interests in the going public decision of firms, IPOs, venture capital financing, angel financing, and security issuance. Many of my research projects utilize establishment level business micro-data of the U.S. Census Bureau in analyzing issues that relate to value creation in firms while they are still private and also on the growth of entrepreneurship and new business creation. With regard to financial intermediation, my interests include issues related to loan syndication and contracting and agency problems in banking.
