My research project
Regulations, Capital Structure and Investment.
My primary research area is in the field of Corporate Finance and Corporate Governance. In particular, I specialise in identifying various natural experimental set-up, e.g., introduction of new law, that may affect corporate financial decisions like capital structure or investment which in turn affect firm performance. My research is primarily empirical and I specialise in identifying causal impact of regulations on corporate financial decisions using fixed effects models, difference in difference methods.
My recent research focusses on the impact of Clause 49 regulations in India on corporate capital structure, effects of historical land reforms on corporate investment in India, effects of managerial remuneration codes on corporate debt in the United Kingdom.
