Jonathan Fluharty's research interests lie in incentives and behavior within the field traditionally known as corporate finance. His work focuses closely in CEO compensation and the examination of the incentives contracts provide to CEOs with respect to risk-taking and investment policies. Dr. Fluharty also conducts research in mergers and acquisitions (M&A), dividend theory, and market microstructure, where he investigates trader behavior. Lastly, he finds studies engaging gender, sexuality, and culture at the cross section of human behavior and firm characteristics to be an intriguing sub-field.
