She co-authored the paper with Sanjai Bhagat of the University of Colorado Boulder’s Leeds School of Business and Brian Bolton of the University of New Hampshire’s Whittemore School of Business & Economics.
The European Corporate Governance Institute awards three annual prizes for papers published in its Working Paper series that have made a substantial contribution to the knowledge of corporate governance in Europe.
