My research interests focus on several areas of accounting and financial economics including: determinants of disclosures and their capital market consequences; peer effects of corporate communication platforms; effects of preferential access in capital markets on institutional investors; effects of mandatory textual disclosures on the beliefs and opinions of shareholders; and, unintended consequences of SEC mandated disclosures on informed traders such as mutual funds and corporate insiders.

BCOR 2203 - Principles of Accounting I
Fall 2018 / Fall 2019
The course builds a basic understanding of how information regarding a firm's resources and obligations is conveyed to decision makers outside the firm. Students will be exposed to both a user-perspective (how to read and analyze financial accounting reports) and a preparer-perspective (how business transactions affect the financial statements). Particular emphasis will be placed on understanding the accounting cycle, or the system with which businesses process and record their business events to create the financial statements.
