Samuel Lee joined New York University Stern School of Business as an Assistant Professor of Finance in September 2009.

Professor Lee's primary research interests include financial market liquidity, corporate finance and corporate governance. His current work examines liquidity spillovers between different groups of active traders, the benefits of dual-class share structures in takeovers, the investment and return dynamics of private equity waves, and the role of social preferences in corporate governance.

During Professor Lee's Ph.D. studies, he was an early-stage researcher in the European Corporate Governance Training Network (ECGTN) and a doctoral fellow at the Stockholm Institute of Transition Economics (SITE).

Professor Lee earned his B.A. and M.A. in Business Administration and his B.A. in Political Science from the Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany, and his Ph.D. in Finance from the Stockholm School of Economics.
