Professor Korgaonkar’s research examines how household credit in the United States is shaped by capital markets, labor markets, and regulation. He studies the intermediation of residential and commercial mortgages, and the sources and nature of agency frictions in these settings.
His work has been accepted for publication to Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis; Management Science; and Journal of Financial Intermediation. It has been presented to audiences at the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), the Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR), the American Finance Association (AFA), and the American Real Estate and Urban Economics Association (AREUEA).
Before joining the McIntire faculty in 2019, Professor Korgaonkar was an Assistant Professor of Real Estate at Pennsylvania State University’s Smeal College of Business.
