My teaching interests include fixed income securities analysis and trading, personal finance, corporate finance, the selection and management of investments, and derivative securities.
My published research includes papers on international diversification and capital structure, the decay of the time value of options, executive turnover following merger announcements, the market microstructure during partial holidays, export financing, the valuation of real options, and the use of futures and options to hedge interest rate and currency risk.
My scholarly work is published in peer-refereed journals such as Journal of Business Finance and Accounting (JBFA), Financial Review (FR), Canadian Journal of Administrative Sciences (CJAS), Managerial and Decision Economics (MDE), Review of Quantitative Finance and Accounting (RQFA), International Review of Economics and Finance (IREF), Decision Sciences (DSI), International Business Review (IBR), and International Journal of Bank Marketing (IJBM).
I developed courses and wrote educational material for the Institute of Canadian Bankers (personal financial planning) and for Certified General Accountants Association of Canada (corporate finance).
My research under-review or in-progress include topics such as derivatives trading, option writing risks and rewards, derivative securities and bank risk management, the intra-day pattern of the bid-ask spread and information asymmetry, corporate ownership structure and capital investments, and executive compensation and its relation to stakeholders' value.
I enjoy applying financial theory to solve practical problems of interest to businesses, individuals, and groups.
