About Me

Greetings! I am Xu Lu, an assistant professor in finance and business economics at the Foster School of Business.

My research addresses key questions in financial intermediation with new perspectives from micro-founded demand frictions. I am particularly interested in the impact of depositor behaviors on bank funding costs and the influence of intermediary constraints on asset prices.

I earned my Ph.D. in finance from Stanford GSB in 2023. Before that, I received my bachelor's degrees from Tsinghua University in 2017.
