Research I research topics in management accounting. In particular, I am interested in performance evaluation and incentives. I am using field experiments to understand how firms can use financial incentives and performance feedback to improve performance. I am studying how financial incentives can be used as a catlyst to form desirable habits and to harness other motivators such as peer pressure. I use analytical modeling and field data to research this topic. I am also very interested in understanding how CEO compensation affects the risk levels at banks. [+]
