Research

Anna’s research interests are in the judgment and decision-making area, primarily applied to the field of Auditing. Her research has focused on the impact of regulatory changes (e.g., the introduction of a requirement to consult about fraud, the recently implemented audit firm rotation, and auditor reporting standard changes) on judgments and decisions of auditors and financial statement users. Her recent work focuses on how auditors and audit firms handle errors and whether varying the error management climate affects auditors’ error reporting willingness and audit firm learning.

Anna’s work utilizes primarily experimental but also archival and qualitative research methods and her publications have appeared in a number of prestigious journals such as The Accounting Review, Accounting Horizons, Journal of Business Ethics, and International Journal of Auditing. Anna has excellent connections with the Dutch audit professional body and audit firms in the Netherlands, which have allowed her access to participants for experiments and interviews in the past.
