Dr De Simone’s research focuses on the intersection of corporate governance and public finance and on small business and household finance, especially in emerging markets. She was recently awarded the AQR Asset Management Institute Fellowship for Academic and Research Excellence for a study using data from Ecuador to show that government tax audits can improve firm value, ultimately reducing the cost of borrowing for audited firms and stimulating firm investment.
Rebecca's research is featured in the Wheeler Institute for Business and Development brochure.
