My research focuses on two broad areas. The first is Firms, Finance and Incentives. Finance matters for firms not just because they need to fund production, sales and investments, but also because the way in which finance is provided, and the role of investors, impacts incentives, behaviour and performance. I study this in the case of large, publicly held companies, and innovative startups.

The second main pillar of my research focuses on individuals, whose beliefs and behaviour are strongly influenced by their identity and social environment. I review my research on identity, memory, belief biases, and social capital.
