Dr Jie Chen


I am an Associate Professor in Accounting and Finance at Leeds University Business School. I previously held the position of lecturer in Finance at Cardiff Business School between 2014 and 2018. In 2014, I was awarded a PhD in Finance from the University of Bristol where I also worked as a teaching assistant.


Research interests

My research interests include mainly empirical corporate finance and corporate governance, such as executive compensation, board of directors, mergers and acquisitions, and dividend policies. I am also interested in corporate innovation, default risk, banking, corporate social responsibility and various aspects of behavioral finance (in particular the role of managerial overconfidence and gender diversity).
