Renée B. Adams is professor of Finance at Said Business School.  Her work focuses on information flows on boards, bank governance, group decision-making, the governance of central banks and gender diversity on and off boards. Her global experience is reflected in the interdisciplinary nature of her research, which has been published in top accounting, economics, finance and management journals.
