I am an empirical researcher with a keen interest in the fields of sustainable finance, social finance, institutional investors, and network theory. My recent research has explored how social trust shapes institutional investors’ portfolio allocation decisions. I also have a developing interest in shareholder networks and how they affect various firm-level outcomes, such as ESG risks or acquisition performance.

Overall, our results emphasise the role of the institutional shareholdings network as a corporate governance mechanism that influences accounting quality and shed light on how investors obtain valuable information for monitoring.
