Dr Lily Nguyen

Senior Lecturer in Finance

School of Business
Faculty of Business, Economics and Law


I am a senior lecturer in finance at UQ Business School. My research interests are in empirical corporate finance and climate finance. I have published in international peer-reviewed finance journals including Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis, Journal of Corporate Finance, Journal of Banking and Finance, Journal of Financial Markets, and Financial Management. I have so far received one Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery research grant and several AFAANZ research grants. I am currently an associate editor at International Review of Financial Analysis and was a guest editor for Pacific-Basin Finance Journal.

I am available for supervising research students. I am particularly proud that some of my former PhD students had their first placements at some UK and Australian universities. Also, all of my former honours students have so far received their first-class honours, some awarded the University Medals.
