Featured Research

"Borrowing money can improve a person’s life in many ways, whether it’s being used to fund an education, start a business or buy a house. But there are also concerns about predatory lending and the implications for financial stability. This has led to regulations that restrict how much money people can borrow. I hope my research will be useful for evaluating and improving these policies."
