My research combines empirical findings in household financial decisions with models that incorporate patterns over the life-cycle (1st paper) or in variations of mortgage outcomes with financial literacy (2nd and 3rd paper). I am also working on social network spillovers in household finance, particularly mortgage lenders' responses to the change in individual search frictions (4th paper).
