Accounting Doctoral Student Named Deloitte & Touche Fellow
Zhao is studying empirical capital markets research in accounting, such as the role of accounting information in asset pricing and corporate financing decisions. She earned a bachelor's degree in accounting from Peking University in Beijing and her master's in accounting from the University of Texas at Dallas.
Before joining the Iowa doctoral program, she was a tax accountant for RIA in Dallas, a tax research and software firm and business unit of the Thomson Corp. In addition, she was a tax accountant for Rubin, Brown, Gornstein & Co. in St. Louis.
Up to 10 students are selected to be Deloitte Fellows, and colleges and universities may nominate only one student for the award each year. This marks the second year in a row that a Tippie doctoral student has been named a Deloitte Fellow. Last year John McInnis was one of 10 students nationwide to receive the award.
