Personal Statement: 

My main domains of interest are in Comparative Political Economy, business and politics, inequalities and the social study of finance. I am currenlty working on my book manuscript "Banking on States. The Divergent European Trajectories of Finance after the crisis". The manuscript analyzes the role of European states in shaping the evolution of their domestic financial industries and the institutional mediation of the power of finance.
