Biography Section

Biography and Education

I earned my bachelor's and master's degrees in accounting from BYU, followed by several years spent working as an auditor with KPMG. I received my Ph.D. from Bentley University in 2013 and have been at Texas State University since.

Teaching Interests

I am passionate about teaching our undergraduate and graduate auditing courses.

Research Interests

My research interests are primarily in the areas of auditing and financial reporting. My main methodological preference is experimental/behavioral, although I have also successfully published projects that use both experiential survey and archival research methods. Generally speaking, my topical focus is on auditor judgment and decision-making, audit policy and procedures, issues surrounding the auditing and reporting of fair values, and auditing within the broker-dealer industry.
