Teaching & Research Interests: 

I plan to conduct research in three broad areas - Corporate Finance, Corporate Governance and Raising Capital. Specically, I would like to study the implications of ownership and control on the corporate decision making in the light of performance and growth of family firms. To my interests in IPOs, I would like to examine the efficacy of security market regulations on the freshly listed stock companies and also provide insights for the policy implications.

With regard to my research and teaching interests, I enjoy teaching courses related to Corporate Finance, Econometrics, Mergers, Acquisitions and Restructurings.
