Research Interests

My research interests lie in the fields of financial economics, corporate finance, and contracts. My current researches focus on agency and information frictions in corporate finance and other areas of economic theory. I explore when and why firms voluntarily disclose performance evidence given there are agency conflicts, and the effects of disclosure on firm policy dynamics and welfare. I examine the role of liquidity allocation in internal capital market: mitigate decentralized information and moral hazard. I also study the optimal security design when agent’s effort or information choice may continuously distort investors’ belief about firm fundamental or future prospects.
