Research interests:
My research is focused on firms financial reporting and voluntary disclosure decisions. I am particularly interested in how firms disclosure decisions interact with peer firms disclosure decisions within the same industry. I am also interested in various topics such as analysts, competitive advantages of the firm, and CEO Compensation structures, and how they affect management accounting / disclosure decisions.
