Research Interests

I am, broadly speaking, interested in market-based accounting research. That is, the combination of accounting and financial theory. I especially find the application of market inefficiency in such a setting interesting.

Current Research

My current research follows two paths.

  1. Detecting long-run accounting-based market anomalies
    • Measurement issues: How can we measure abnormal returns and abnormal earnings without bias?
    • Cross-sectional tests of return predictability: Can anomaly studies based on market inefficiency find abnormal returns? Does the introduction of fair-value accounting affect the accrual anomaly?
  2. Accounting for Goodwill
    • What is acquired Goodwill's useful life?
    • What sort of time-series process guides acquired goodwill?

I have two papers that I currently work on and these are:

  1. Unbiased estimation of dynamic earnings models using panel data
    A paper that both use Monte Carlo simulations and US accounting data and in which I show the bias in existing accounting research that use dynamic models.
  2. A fundamental investment strategy based on residual income.
    This is a paper in which I investigate the possibility to earn abnormal returns based on a particular fundamental investment strategy.
