My research interests encompass different dimensions of corporate governance, capital markets, and policy/regulatory reforms in developed and emerging markets. Current areas of exploration include:
- Agency issues within the capital markets and impact on incentives, behavior, and accountability
- Effectiveness of institutional shareholders as monitors/stewards
- Optimal balance of incentives and liability for corporate managers and financial market intermediaries
- Impact of relative performance measures on corporate performance and financial system stability
- Effective approaches to improve corporate governance standards and practices in emerging markets
As a practitioner with an academic bent, I am interested in helping to strengthen the bridge between academic thinking and real-world practice in the areas of corporate governance and capital market regulation, with a view to improving corporate and capital market practices, policymaking, and academic research and teaching.
