Jenny Zhang, PhD (Alberta), BComm (Alberta)
On the research front, I have developed a strong interest in pursuing archival research that looks into the association between financial reporting quality and several audit-related issues. Topics of particular interest include (1) accounting-based earnings management and real activity management, (2) effects of regulation and corporate governance on financial reporting, (3) audit market competition on earnings management practices. On the teaching front, I have taught intermediate financial accounting. My teaching philosophy is to encourage students to fully understand the accounting conceptual framework and appreciate how accounting rules and techniques fit into the conceptual framework, rather than trying to memorize them by brute force.
