Assistant Professor of Accounting, Business Law and Taxation at Columbia University Graduate School of Business
My research focuses primarily on the effects of accounting information, accounting related regulation, taxation and business law on the financial system and equity and debt investors both in the U.S. and around the world. My research provides evidence that accounting information, taxation and business law play a significant role in investors' decision-making processes and shapes the design of contracts and the financial system.
My research investigations focus on the effects of frictions created by information asymmetry, taxation and business law on debt and equity markets around the world. I have researched in the areas of debt contracting, international accounting, international taxation, foreign investments, accounting regulation, and financial distress.
