Welcome to my website. My name is Aytekin. I am an assistant professor at the London Business School. I joined LBS in 2014 following my doctoral studies at Yale University.
My research focuses on the real effects of information disclosure and reporting practices, especially in the banking sector. My papers also examine the role of accounting in corporate and SME credit markets.
I teach financial reporting and analysis (Executive MBA), and M&As and private equity (Executive Education). My doctoral courses explore empirical accounting research topics on financial intermediation and debt contracting.
Outside of work and family, I enjoy cooking, history, board games, and sports—football, American football, and basketball.
