«His primary research focus is on issues in corporate taxation, in particular on income shifting and tax avoidance in multinational corporations. Of particular importance, re-cent papers give new insights into how debt shifting has significant impact on capital structure and tax payments of affiliates, and how the presence of loss-making affiliates affect income shifting behavior in a multinational company.
