My research is centred on empirical finance, adopting a multidisciplinary approach that intersects corporate finance, entrepreneurial finance, sustainable finance, and network theory. My recent work has explored how social trust shapes institutional investors’ portfolio allocation decisions. Additionally, my growing interest in venture capital and institutional shareholders focuses on their impact on firm-level outcomes, including ESG preferences and acquisition performance.
