Stefano Pegoraro is a Ph.D. student in Financial Economics at the Kenneth C. Griffin Department of Economics and Booth School of Business of the University of Chicago.
His main areas of research are financial economics and monetary economics.
In particular, his focus is on the interaction between monetary policy and financial stability and on how each of them may support, or hinder, the other. His current projects include an empirical analysis of the effects of quantitative easing on firms’ financing and economic activity and a theoretical model for banks’ reach-for-yield and liquidity hoarding behavior.
Prior to joining the University of Chicago, Stefano earned his BA and Master in Economics at the University of Pisa while attending the Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies.
