Department of Accounting, Auditing and Business Analytics

Biography

My research background covers the following three areas (in alphabetic order): (i) corporate finance, (ii) financial reporting and (iii) financial stability issues and has been published in leading accounting and finance journals such as the Journal of Accounting Research or the Review of Finance. I also serve as an editor of the Journal of Pension Economics and Finance.

In particular, my recent research interest focuses on the implications of financial reporting choices on companies' real actions. These papers have been (or will be) presented at the Annual Meeting of the European Accounting Association or the Northeast Region Meeting of the American Accounting Association.

My teaching experience ranges from master level courses to executive programs at the Norwegian School of Economics (NHH), the Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU) and WU Executive Academy, coverings topics such as Corporate Finance, Financial Statement Analysis, International Finance, Portfolio Management and Valuation. I'm currently preparing two new courses in Financial Reporting and Financing Accounting Theory to be taught at BI Norwegian Business School.
