Bryce Schonberger is an Assistant Professor in Accounting at the Leeds School of Business. Bryce is interested in how economic factors account for patterns in disclosure and financial reporting quality across firms. Specifically, his research investigates how raising capital, such as via an initial public or seasoned equity offering, shapes firms’ accrual and corporate disclosure policies. In conducting his research, Bryce employs research settings and methodological tools, including entropy balancing, designed to facilitate causal inference. His research also examines how firm-level accounting information is interpreted and used by market participants in response to macroeconomic conditions, such as growth in real output or economic policy uncertainty.
