My research is primarily in corporate finance, with a focus on corporate governance and compensation of executives and employees. I have taught courses in undergraduate programs, MBA, other Masters programs, and doctoral programs. I received my Ph.D. from New York University’s Stern School of Business. I have published in the Journal of Financial Economics, Review of Financial Studies, Management Science, and Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis.
