I am interested in corporate law, financial regulation, securities law and empirical studies. With my thesis, I hope to empirically investigate the actual Related Party Transactions (RPTs) patterns of Chinese listed firms, the implementation of the RPTs legal strategies, and the effectiveness and efficiency of current RPTs regulatory regimes on constraining opportunistic behaviors and safeguarding the interest of minority shareholders. The research supplements the comparative corporate governance literature with empirical evidence from China. It may also shed light on fundamental characteristics of Chinese corporate governance ecosystem and help promote the protection of public investors in China.
