I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Finance at the Faculty of Business and Economics, University of Melbourne. My research focuses primarily on corporate governance and the oversight of publicly traded companies. In particular, my work explores the impact of large shareholders and regulators (such as the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Department of Justice) on corporate policies and dynamics. The methodologies in my papers utilize textual analysis and basic machine learning applications to extract quantitative information from textual disclosures.
