Faculty Profile for Dr. Nate Cannon
Biography and EducationI 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 InterestsI am passionate about teaching our undergraduate and graduate auditing courses.
Research InterestsMy 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.
