My current research interests relate to employee responses to the management control system. My ongoing projects relate to employee learning, employee engagement, goal setting, and reciprocity in the workplace. I primarily address my research questions experimentally as well as with field data.

I have taught a range of accounting courses including management accounting, financial accounting, and audit and have taught at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. I am interested primarily in management accounting. I also believe in incorporating data analytics and data visualization into all topical areas of accounting in order to better prepare students for their futures.
