Seminar Topic: "Audit Firm Rotation and Misstatements: Evidence from a Dynamic Discrete Choice Structural Model"
Speaker: Prof. Edwige Cheynel, Washington University’s Olin Business School
About the speaker：
Edwige Cheynel’s primary area of research is exploring the relationship between disclosure, financial markets and the cost of capital. She has approached the question of disclosure and the cost of capital from three avenues, all of which involve understanding a firm’s disclosure as a choice that it makes. The first avenue specifically focuses on the problem of firms raising capital for the purpose of investment decisions and how these investment decisions are related to the disclosure. The second avenue focuses on the disclosure as a choice made by both a standard-setting body and firms. The third avenue looks specifically at how characteristics of the market environment (both financial or product market) may determine the type of disclosures that are made. Edwige received the William Larimer Mellon Fellowship from Carnegie Mellon University in 2004-2007 and the Alexander Henderson Award for Excellence in Economic Theory from Tepper Business School, Carnegie Mellon University in 2010. She has published in the top journals in accounting, such as The Review of Accounting Studies, The Journal of Accounting Research and The Accounting Review. She earned an M.S. from the HEC School of Management in 2002 and a M.S. from Carnegie Mellon University in 2006. In 2010, Cheynel earned a Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University.
