I am an assistant professor of accounting at the University of Texas at Dallas and I teach introduction to financial accounting.
I am broadly interested in the factors that shape firm disclosure, both financial and non-financial, and in the economic impact of disclosure on investors, politicians, regulators, and consumers. In particular, I am interested in corporate social responsibility (CSR) disclosure, the role firms play in their political environments, and the intersection of the two.
Before entering academia, I worked in investment banking at J.P. Morgan and at CODE Advisors. Outside of work, I enjoy cooking and baking, indoor rowing, and spending time with family, friends, and my two cats.
