Personal profile

Research interests

I have recently become associate member of the Aston Centre for Research in Experimental Finance (ACREF). I am a member of the SAFE (Seminars in Accounting and Finance) research network. I have recently been appointed as editor-in-chief for the International Journal of Behavioural Accounting and Finance, which is launching in 2008. 

My current research interests include: application of game theoretical tools to strategic corporate finance; capital structure and the effects of agency problems, signalling, and product market competition; venture capitalism, bargaining, and the incorporation of behavioural effects into the double-sided moral hazard problem affecting financial contracts and performance; behavioural corporate finance.

Willing to supervise PhD

I am interested in supervising students in all areas of corporate finance (eg, investment appraisal, capital structure, and dividend policy decisions), with particular focus on managerial incentives, behavioural and emotional corporate finance. A further research area that I am keen to supervise is venture capital and private equity. I particularly welcomes applicants with an interest in both theoretical and empirical approaches.

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
