research overview

  • Dr. Tice's research centers on corporate governance in public companies. She focuses primarily on the board of directors and monetary incentives that affect managerial actions. In the context of corporate boards, Dr. Tice examines how information exchanged between corporate boards through networks can affect firm outcomes as well as how governance structures evolve and related consequences of such changes. Her recent work also investigates how incentives, including those stemming from compensation contract features, affect managerial behavior such as engaging in risk-taking and lobbying efforts.
