My primary research interest is understanding investor behavior. I have written papers focused on how investors respond to corporate apologies after organizational crises as well as papers about how emotions influence investment activity as well as information search and processing behavior. My other research interests include understanding behavior in other domains such as when individuals are more or less likely to misreport information.
