To date, I am developing three research lines:
1. Causal ambiguity, proprietary costs and voluntary disclosure. In other words, we would like to know the behavior of firms in relation to voluntary disclosure and their strategic resources. It is clear that firms are obliged to reveal information, however, they need to maintain sufficient ambiguity because, in opposite case, they would disclose the competitive advantages.
2. Herding, stickiness and voluntary disclosure. This second research line analyses the same voluntary disclosure, but in relation to the mimicry behaviour in relation to other firms, and the own experience when firms disclose.
3. Assurance and sustainability report. Last dates, more firms conveys the sustainability report (Corporate Social Responsibility). However, despite this phenomenon, it is not clear why the sustainability assurance is not generalized in the same degree. In this branch of the science, we would develop studies that analyze different factors that advice to firms to apply sustainability assurance.
