My research studies entrepreneurial and household finance, particularly in emerging markets (where credit market frictions are more prevalent). My job market paper studies financial technology adoption. I study the spillovers of consumers’ adoption of a particular financial technology—debit cards—on both the supply and demand sides of the market. My other working papers and projects study FinTech and the impact of access to entrepreneurial and household finance.
