Research Interests

Behavioral Accounting and Economics

Research Statement

My research deals with behavioral aspects in accounting and economics. A current project examines how managerial overconfidence affects cost behavior. In a related project, I examine real consequences that arise from less than perfectly rational investor behavior. A third project is concerned with attention effects in the market for efficient  fuel technologies.
