I teach undergraduate and postgraduate courses in corporate finance, as well as PhD research courses in empirical methodology. My primary research field is corporate finance, in particular mergers and acquisitions, governance, and issues related to the emerging markets. My work has been published in leading peer-reviewed journals such as Review of Financial Studies, Journal of Financial Intermediation, Financial Management, and Journal of Banking and Finance. I have won many awards for my research, including the Pearson Prize for the Best Paper published in Financial Management

Before joining ANU, I had taught at University of New South Wales. I received my PhD in Finance from Nanyang Technological University.
