Teaching and research

I research in corporate finance and corporate governance. The main focus of my research is on share issuance and repurchase, dividend payments and investment. I particularly explore the effects of financial constraints on corporate decisions such as share repurchase, dividend payments and investments, as well as the impacts of corporate governance on these corporate decisions.
