Judson Caskey focuses on both empirical and modeling research in financial accounting, specifically on the role of accounting disclosures within the context of informed decision making. His empirical research examines the information conveyed by financial reports and how investors use it. His current projects range from showing the correlation between meeting earnings targets and a company’s potential to compromise on employee safety to how individual firms’ accounting policies should not affect their cost of capital.
