    Participating in the Chancellor’s Undergraduate Research Awards program: Yes

    Research Interest:
    My research interests involve many areas in accounting
    and the financial market. For example, I am interested in economic consequences of new securities regulation, such as the Sarbanes Oxley Act of 2002. I am also interested in the relation between earnings and returns, especially when earnings are likely managed to meet various benchmarks, such as analyst forecast.

    Minimum time commitment in hours per week: 6

    Qualifications of a Student:
    A candidate must have already taken Accounting 210, with grade B or above. Preferably, a student also finished a few finance courses in the CBA with grade B or above.

    Brief Summary of what is expected from the student:
    I expect the student(s) to be able to read financial reports of public companies, and understand the content of news disclosure. I would provide guidelines on how data would be collected from reading financial information or news, then enter into an excel file. Data collection is an important step in the success of research, and I expect the assistant to provide accurate and prompt information.
