Overview

My academic interests and expertise lie in agribusiness, with a particular focus on finance and governance issues. As a teaching professor, my aim is to help students develop frameworks to analyse financial and business processes through critical thinking and experiential learning. Having investigated the economic and financial behavior of diverse types of firms (large companies, small- and medium-sized enterprises, family firms, cooperatives, farms … ), I apply this experience to the classroom by incorporating a diverse range of methods including modeling, quantitative analysis, and case studies.

My key areas of research include:

  • Corporate Governance
  • Entrepreneurial Finance
  • Governance of Agricultural Cooperatives
  • The wine industry
  • Bank relationships
