“Passive Investors, Not Passive Owners” (with Todd A. Gormley and Donald B. Keim), working paper

“My research focuses on factors that influence corporate behavior. I am particularly interested in institutional investors and the intersection between law and finance. My dissertation studied the role of shareholder litigation rights in corporate governance. In other recent work, I study how the actions of ‘passive’ institutional investors influence different corporate policies.”
