Samuel Tan, Berkeley Accounting PhD Candidate


I am a PhD Candidate in Accounting at the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley, and I am on the 2017–2018 academic job market.

My primary research interests are at the intersection of accounting and the legal and regulatory environments. In ongoing work, my coauthors and I leverage institutional detail and novel data to examine the impact of key features of the legal environment and the role of law firms and legal counsel in the accounting process. I am also interested in IPO pricing and performance, and the application of network analysis to accounting research.
