RBC Professor in Responsible Organizations, Concordia University

My primary areas of research and teaching concentrate on corporate governance. I study actors involved in corporate governance such as directors, shareholders, and executives; and I analyze the practices that characterize corporate governance like board appointments, executive compensation, and disclosure decisions.

My research has been published in leading academic journals such as the Journal of Accounting and Economics, Journal of Accounting Research, Contemporary Accounting Research, Human Relations, European Accounting Review, Accounting Perspectives and the Academy of Management Perspectives.

My work is funded by the RBC Professorship in Responsible Organizations and by Social Sciences and Humanities Research Canada (SSHRC).
