We are pleased to announce that Ran Duchin, Professor of Finance at the Carroll School of Management in Boston College, has accepted our invitation to join us as one of the Managing Editors of the JFQA, effective January 1, 2022.
Before joining Boston College, Ran served on the faculty of the University of Washington’s Foster School of Business and the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business.
Ran’s primary research focus is on corporate finance, corporate governance, and political economy. His work studies a wide range of investment decisions, including internal capital allocation, acquisitions, and government bailouts. In his work, he investigates various mechanisms and frictions that shape investment decisions, ranging from political economy and financial regulation to agency conflicts and behavioral factors.
Ran’s work has been published in the top finance journals, including the Journal of Finance, Journal of Financial Economics, Review of Financial Studies, and Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis. His work has won various awards and is widely cited in the academic literature and the popular press.
We are excited to have Ran bring his expertise and broad scholarship to the JFQA.
