Since Monica was awarded her PhD by Monash University in 2005, she has published in a number of quality international journals and attracted a number of research grants.
Senior Lecturer, School of Economics, Finance and Marketing
In mid-2006, she decided to pursue her interests in governance further by obtaining first-hand experience in the corporate sector. During her professional appointment as a senior consultant and client manager in enterprise risk management and governance, she was involved in numerous projects and product developments which gave her invaluable insight into key issues, current developments, practices and challenges faced by practitioners, academics, policy makers and regulators.
In mid-2009, she returned to a full-time lectureship at RMIT University, with a focus on contributing to research and development in corporate governance with relevance to industries. Monica's research interests are board of director and executive practices, corporate ownership structure, business and political relationships and networks and investor behaviour. She combines empirical and experimental methods to understand the decision making process and causes and the resultant outcomes in companies and markets.
