Overview

I am a PhD candidate at Cardiff Business School in the Accounting and Finance section. I am one of organizers of the Accounting and Finance Reading Group at Cardiff Business School. I am also a member of the Cardiff Corporate Governance Research Group (CCGRG), the Empirical Finance Group at Cardiff Business School and the Centre for China Business Research (CCBR). I hold MSc in Accounting and Finance and MSc in Social Science Research Methods (with Distinction) from Cardiff University.


My research interests are mainly in the area of empirical corporate finance, including: corporate voluntary disclosure, managerial overconfidence, corporate governance, corporate social responsibility. I am also interested in the broad area of accounting and auditing.


Before embarking on my PhD in Finance, I have had several years of professional working experience. My experience in industry adds value to my research.
