My primary areas of research and teaching concentrate on corporate governance. I study the processes of corporate governance such as boards of directors, shareholder activism, executive compensation and corporate disclosures. I also investigate the consequences of corporate governance for actors implicated in and affected by governance (e.g., women on corporate boards, regulators, competitors). 

Research Highlights:

  • Gender parity in corporate leadership
  • Spillover effects of corporate disclosures
  • The implications of shareholder activism
