About me

Mahafuzar R Chy

I am a PhD student in accounting at the Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto. My research focuses on the real effects of accounting information. More specifically, I am interested in learning how accounting measurements, reporting and regulations affect firm’s financing and investment policies. I am also interested in applied statistics and econometrics; in particular, I delve into how one can apply statistical methods to draw valid inferences from observational data in accounting and financial economics.
