Research Field
Financial Contracts, Law and Economics
Research Theme
In recent years, I have devoted myself to studying contract theory, incomplete contract theory and its applications in particular. I have theoretically examined optimal structure of financial laws, and topics on securitization, corporate rehabilitation and M&As. I also applied the same approach to economic analysis of corporate and contract laws and their optimal designs. Moreover, I am studying desirable organizational design using cases of contents industries and macro economic analysis from the perspective of contract theory.
