I have been a finance faculty at Smith School of Business at Queen's University (Canada) since 2007, and the founding director of Queen’s Master of Finance–Beijing program (in collaboration with Renmin University of China).
My primary research expertise is in corporate restructuring, bankruptcy, leveraged finance and high-yield bonds, and distressed investing. My research papers have been published in top finance journals and featured in prominent media including the Wall Street Journal, Dow Jones Newswires, South China Morning Post, The Globe and Mail, and Business Week.
I have been invited to write finance case packages for the Harvard Business School and have published eight so far. These cases cover a wide range of corporate finance topics, including working capital management, short-term financing, capital structure, corporate valuation, payout policy, corporate restructuring, and merger& acquisitions. They have been adopted by many schools internationally.
During my visit at the Wharton School of University of Pennsylvania since 2015, I have taught corporate restructuring, distressed M&A, and distress investing in their undergraduate, MBA, EMBA, and ExecEd programs.
I was a visiting associate professor at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology Business School from 2015 to 2016, and worked in commodity derivative trading and financial engineering prior to the academic career.
I am serving on the Large Corporations Committee of the Bankruptcy & COVID-19 Working Group with a group of distinguished law and finance professors (click HERE for our first letter to the US Senate and Congress).
The Chinese edition of my joint book with Edward Altman and Edith Hotchkiss will be published this summer (see announcement here)
