Sergio Correia I am an economist at the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, in the Division of Financial Stability. My research interests include banking and corporate finance, with a focus on banking competition and how it relates to consumer and firm credit access. I am also interested in economic history as well as empirical methods and their application on very large datasets.

This site contains my academic research, as well as software, and data. You can also go to my Google Scholar page for a (sometimes) more up-to-date research list; and to my Github for more software tools.
