The purpose for his stay at UiO
At present, his research interests include the remuneration of the directors of the company, the imposition of gender quotas in Company boards, and, especially, corporate governance codes. It is his desire to spend a period of research or teaching abroad. That would be very important for his training program and growth as a teacher and researcher. The visit would be a fundamental moment of confrontation with other universities and other teachers, and therefore a unique and exceptional opportunity for cultural and professional enrichment.
