Since 2013, I have the pleasure to serve as the RBC Professor in Responsible Organizations here at the John Molson School of Business. I research corporate governance in Canada and internationally; I focus on the role of shareholder power (and power relations more generally), executive compensation, and disclosures in corporate governance.

My research has been published in the Journal of Accounting Research, the Academy of Management Perspectives, Contemporary Accounting Relations, Human Relations and the European Accounting Review; I have also been featured in La Presse and on CTV Canada. My research has been funded by Social Sciences and Humanities Research Canada (SSHRC).

I teach a course on socially responsible organizations to PhD students, and a course on disclosures to undergraduate students.
