I am an Assistant Professor of Accounting at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My research focuses on the determinants of corporate information, with an emphasis on qualitative properties of disclosures, and their implications for capital markets. I am particularly interested in applications of machine learning to Accounting research.
I recently graduated from Rice University with a Ph.D. in Accounting. Before joining the Ph.D. program at Rice, I earned a full chess scholarship to attend the University of Texas at Brownsville, where I received my Bachelor’s Degree with a double major in Accounting and in Finance and graduated Summa Cum Laude. I was a professional chess player for 12 years and I hold the FIDE title of Woman International Master in chess.
