I have been presenting my research in conferences and universities in the US, Europe, and Asia and my research has appeared in news media such as Bloomberg, BusinessWeek, Yahoo!Finance, and SEC.gov.

I am interested in corporate governance related topics in accounting and finance. Currently, my research focuses on innovation, political economy, financial reporting, behavioral finance, analysts, as well as big data analysis.
