Areas of Specialization

I welcome inquiries from prospective postgraduate students. My own PhD research focuses on stock market efficiency, which covers: (1) measuring the degree of informational efficiency (relative market efficiency); (2) tracking the evolution of market efficiency over time (evolving/time-varying market efficiency); (3) exploring the determinants of informational efficiency. There are still many issues to be explored in these areas (both at the firm- and country-levels), and I am ready to supervise any interested students.

Apart from the above topics, my research interests also include stock liquidity, corporate ownership, stock volatility, institutional quality and financial liberalization.
