A leading academic expert on mergers and takeovers, Professor Golubov studies how firms make investment and financing decisions, particularly those involving considerations related to corporate control. His work falls into two broad streams of financial economics: capital markets and the market for corporate control, and the behaviour of asset prices. His current research examines various aspects of mergers and acquisitions, corporate governance, and firm value and performance. One of his ongoing projects is pioneering the use of new microdata from Canada to better understand the effects of mergers and acquisitions on employee welfare.
