Current Research Activities
My research interests lie in three main areas: market-based accounting; voluntary disclosure; and corporate governance. My current projects include: the valuation of stock and cash dividends in China; the association between cash and stock dividends and earnings management in China; the effect of UK corporate governance reforms on CEO succession; and the valuation of regular and non-regular dividends in the UK. I am interested in supervising PhD students in similar areas.
