PhD: Università della Svizzera italiana

English The central interest of my doctoral studies is to analyze market efficiency, with a particular emphasis on the role of retail traders and short sellers. My thesis consists of three chapters in the fields of asset pricing and corporate finance. Using unique datasets and empirical approaches I address several questions, including: “Can retail trader coordination lead to market-distorting events?”, “How prevalent are short squeezes?”, and “Can crowdfunding mitigate small firms’ capital constraints?”.
