About

In 2019-2020 I was awarded the Bridgestone Americas Distinguished Lecturer" recognition. My research has been published in leading academic journals such as The Accounting Review, Contemporary Accounting Research, the Journal of Accounting, Auditing & Finance, the Review of Accounting and Finance, The International Journal of Accounting and the European Accounting Review.


Research interests

My research is in financial reporting. More specifically, I am interested in understanding how characteristics of financial information affect the capital markets and investors’ reaction to financial disclosure, as well as how different types of disclosures can interact to affect information users.  

My research interests are impact of financial information on capital markets, voluntary disclosure, and accounting conservatism.
