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

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 generally, and on occasion cybersecurity for finance professionals. 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.
