In my research, I mainly focus on empirical studies of institutional investors and asset management industry. My work covers topics including pension fund performance and governance, asset allocation and regulation, delegation and intermediation in asset management. I have worked on research questions in public markets as well as private markets, such as private equity, real estate and infrastructure.
