Research

My principal research interest lies in the field of empirical finance and stock market behaviour with an emphasis on the behavior of financial analysts, initial public offerings (IPOs), portfolio performance evaluation, and asset pricing and valuation, etc.

Research projects in progress

1) Earnings management and IPO performance;

2) Financial analysts' advice, e.g., stock recommendations, earnings forecasts, and price target;

3) Corporate reputation effect.

Welcome expressions of interests from potential PhD students in the above areas and related finance areas. Please email your CV and research proposal first.
