Welcome to my webpage

My name is Torsten Jochem. I am an Associate Professor in Finance at the University of Amsterdam. Before joining Amsterdam, I obtained a PhD in Economics from the University of Pittsburgh. My research areas include corporate governance, executive compensation and empirical corporate finance. I also work on cross-disciplinary governance topics about the workings of (scientific) teams or voting.

In an earlier career, I worked as a software developer and now combine this with the topics of business and statistics in teaching Python and machine learning for finance. 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.
