Research interests

My main interest is in Financial Development. Macroprudential policy has increasingly become part of the regulatory and supervisory framework of monetary authorities. The analysis of this new type of banking regulation provides new tools to understand systemic risk of the banking sector. Likewise, I have also done research in access to finance of SMEs in China. Financial services and, in particular, the availability of credit, are crucial for the efficient realization of a firm’s investment possibilities, affecting the generation of employment and sustained growth of firms.

A second important area of research is International Trade and Development. Building on the idea of product space, a simulation model connecting the Schumpeterian idea of technological regimes with the notion of product relatedness may provide insights of analysis of product specialization as a model of development. In addition, I am carrying out work in economic integration in the Asia and Pacific Region.

I have also done research in Public Finance (looking at fiscal decentralization and tax competition) and infrastructure investment (High speed trains in China, in particular).
