Professor Poczter's research looks at the linkages between financial markets and non-financial sector firms in emerging economies. In particular, she analyzes the impact of financial crisis and subsequent government intervention on private sector firms. Her current work examines the mechanisms underlying industry evolution and the role that non-market forces such as political connections play on firm strategy.
