Biography

I am an Associate Professor of Accounting at BI Norwegian Business School in Oslo, Norway.

My research covers the following three areas: accounting, corporate finance and financial stability and has been published in leading journals such as the Journal of Accounting Research or the Review of Finance. I also serve as an associate editor of the Journal of Pension Economics and Finance.

Recent work focuses on the implications of financial reporting choices on companies' real actions. These papers are on the programs of the 2019 Annual Meeting of the European Accounting Association, the 2019 Northeast Region Meeting of the American Accounting Association (AAA) , the 2020 Netspar International Pension Workshop, the 2020 Midyear Meeting of the Financial Accounting and Reporting Section of the AAA and the 2020 Swiss Accounting Research Alpine Camp (SARAC).
