Mike is a fifth year doctoral student in the J.M. Tull School of Accounting. Mike examines research questions in auditing using the experimental method. Mike is interested in how auditors make judgments and decisions when they have competing goals. Mike’s dissertation investigates how performing client service activities affects auditors’ willingness to challenge management’s preferred accounting. In addition, Mike’s research examines how features of the auditing environment, such as documentation requirements and audit programs, affect the quality of auditors’ judgments and decisions about complex accounting estimates.
