Welcome to my webpage

My name is Torsten Jochem. I am an Associate Professor in Finance at the University of Amsterdam. 

I am interested in how firms organize 


include corporate governance, incentives & compensation and empirical corporate finance. I have also work on cross-disciplinary governance topics about voting and the working of (scientific) teams. 

My teaching interests include 


In an earlier career,  I worked as a software developer and now combine IT with finance and statistics to teach Python, topics in machine learning for finance, FinTech and cybersecurity. I am open to industry collaborations and to have my students work on select business optimization problems. Feel free to send me an email if you are interested.

In my free time, I enjoy hiking and spending time with family.  Feel free to drop me a line if you have any questions or comments at t.jochem (at) uva.nl.
