iBEAF is excited to announce the launch of our informal speaker series, where we will be bringing in Brandeis University and IBS faculty members interested in behavioral economics and finance to talk about anything and everything to do with the subject. The informal nature of these meetings means they will evolve based on your questions and areas of interest. The faculty member is interested in talking about what you wish to hear about.
First on our schedule is Professor Debarshi K. Nandi, Associate Professor of Finance in the Brandeis International Business School.
His specializations include Corporate Finance, Entrepreneurial Finance and Financial Intermediation, with specific interests in the going public decision of firms, IPOs, Venture Capital, Angel financing, Firm Productivity, Syndicated Loans and Hedge Funds.
Many of his research projects utilize establishment level business micro-data of the U.S. Census Bureau in analyzing issues that relate to value creation in firms while they are still private and also on the growth of entrepreneurship and new business creation. With regard to financial intermediation, his interests include issues related to loan syndication and contracting and agency problems in banking.
