Her research has explored executive social networks, incentives and executive compensation, the gambler’s fallacy, M&A, corporate social responsibility, loan screening, and errors in voting. Her research has been awarded the AQR Insight Award, the Wharton School-WRDS Award for Best Empirical Finance Paper, and the UBS Global Asset Management Award for Research in Investments.
