Personal profile

Research biography

My research is in the areas of empirical asset pricing and corporate finance. I have recently published in reputable finance journals such as International Review of Financial Analysis and International Review of Finance. I have been the ad-hoc reviewer for various finance journals.

My PhD Thesis, “Essays on stock return forecasting, trend-following trading strategy and empirical asset pricing” won the University Medal and is in the area of asset pricing and investment. I seek to better understand how market dynamics and investor behaviour drive stock returns in the context of emerging markets.

Regarding corporate finance, I am keen to better understand the factors that affect firm behaviours, in particular investment decisions. I am interested in the role of information asymmetry and agency conflict in distorting value-maximizing investment decisions.
