Her current research examines the role of accounting in mitigating agency costs and information asymmetry between companies and external capital providers, but also within multinational business groups. She is also interested in the relation between characteristics of the labor market and firms’ reporting practices, the accuracy of model-based credit ratings, and the effect of the market for corporate control on firms’ accounting practices. All her projects aim to enhance our understanding of the role of accounting in mitigating market frictions, and in the process inform practitioners and accounting regulators about these issues.
