Research interests

Corporate finance theory; group decision making; dynamic financial decisions.

The major theme of Shiqi’s research is to develop further understanding of how different corporate decisions interacts and how different sources of market frictions affect joint dynamics of financial decisions. In particular, Shiqi is interested in how heterogeneous preferences of decision-makers influence a firm’s investment, payout and financing decisions, and how the decision-making process differs from a single decision-maker case. In another line of her research, Shiqi examines how information acquisition affects a firm’s investment and payout policies in the presence of incomplete information and imperfect learning. She also studies the interaction between firms’ capital structure and industry dynamics by exploring how debt-policy non-commitment influences the industrial organisation. In sum, Shiqi’s research tries to model the inherent interdependency of corporate decisions and hopes to provide new economic insights.

Shiqi Chen is a member of the Finance subject group.
