John Barry

Fuqua School of Business


Hello! I’m a PhD candidate in Finance at the Fuqua School of Business, Duke University. I conduct research in corporate finance. I study how shareholders influence executive compensation policy through shareholder voting. I am also interested in corporate investment (including the determination of discount rates, capital budgeting and project horizons) and corporate flexibility.

I will be on the 2023/2024 academic job market.
