Dr. Ruoyan HUANG received her Ph.D. in Finance from the University of Rochester in 2016. She also holds a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from Peking University, and a Master of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of Rochester. Ruoyan joined The University of Hong Kong in 2016.
Ruoyan’s research interests include corporate finance, dynamic contracting, entrepreneurial finance, and labour and finance. Her job market paper, “Executive Job Matching: Estimates from a Dynamic Model,” evaluates how CEOs’ and firms’ learning about their fit with one another affects CEO turnover and compensation decisions. Using a hand-collected dataset of CEO turnover, Ruoyan discovers that the speed and precision of learning determine the level and length of the “discovery phase” of the conditional hazard rate curve. She also finds that CEO compensation demonstrates a firm’s evaluation of the match quality and is predictive of the expected future tenure of its CEO. In short, Ruoyan demonstrates the importance of learning and selection in explaining the relations between CEO compensation, CEO turnover, and firm performance.
