Research interests: The driving purpose behind my research is to understand how accounting standards and government regulations, such as taxation, feed back into economic decisions made by managers. I believe that such research has social value, as it helps standard setters and policy makers understand how certain standards or regulations shape economic development, whether intentionally or unintentionally. This research purpose is driven by my personal, work, and academic history, which suggest that social mobility is a critical element for our country’s success. I believe that understanding how rules affect economic development will assist in addressing the historic and pervasive issue of income inequality in our world.
