Dr. Meg Adachi-Sato is a lecturer at RMIT University and has a strong background in microeconomics, both pure and applied theories. Having both advanced trainings in law and economics from Tokyo University (PhD in March 2009), her research ranges from organizational economics, law and economics to financial economics. Her main research interest focuses on one common theme: the optimal compensation schedule within organizations. For example, using contract and game theories, she studies the effect of vesting conditions of stock-based compensation on managerial replacement. Another area of her research interest is the examination of financial tools and corporate governance. For instance, she looks at the transmission of bank systemic risk to corporate investment. She has published her research in a number of journals (e.g., the Manchester School). Using her strong background in mathematics, she has developed and taught several economics and finance courses (e.g., Mathematics for Economists, Corporate Governance, Microeconomics, Game theory) at both undergraduate and graduate levels.
