Research Interests:
Drawing on several years of investment banking experience, I focus on research topics at the intersection of accounting and financial economics. For example, I am interested in understanding the role of accounting and macroeconomic information in fundamental analysis and securities pricing. I am also interested in examining the consequences of disclosure, regulation of financial institutions, and contracting mechanisms.
