Research Focus

A substantial portion of my research focuses on financial market responsibility and disclosure requirements that can be adopted to increase the fairness of financial markets for average investors. More recently, I have begun look at the CSR focus of firms, and the types of CSR activities that are material and immaterial for different industries.
