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 doctoral students

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.
