Om Dawei Fang

Dawei Fang joined the University of Gothenburg as a postdoc in finance in 2013. He is now a Browaldh research fellow. He received his D.Phil. in Economics from the University of Oxford in 2013 and B.A. in Economics from Fudan University in 2006.

Dawei's main areas of research fall within corporate finance and competition, focusing on developing rational choice models of financing, investment, managerial risk-taking and compensation. Most of his work is related to the effects of managerial contracts and rank-based contest structures on corporate and social value, and to the problem of designing contracts or contests to maximize shareholder or social value. Specifically, he has studied the optimal contract between investors and private equity fund managers, the relation between the rank-based reward structures and managerial risk-taking, the effect of managerial risk-taking on asset markets in mutual fund tournaments, the optimal market structure for innovation and discovery, and the optimal contest structure for selection and/or matching.

Dawei teaches Mathematics to Economics and Finance master students. He also involves in the teaching of Advanced Corporate Finance and Topics in Finance to Finance master students and the supervision of finance master theses.
