Biography

Scott Emett is an assistant professor with W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University. His research focuses on how producers and consumers of financial disclosures make judgments and decisions. Much of his research uses experiments and applies theories from psychology to understand how cognitive and motivational forces lead decision makers to deviate from the behavior predicted by classical economic theories. Professor Emett previously taught courses in financial accounting and managerial accounting at Cornell University and Brigham Young University.

His research has been published in The Accounting Review; Accounting, Organizations, and Society; Contemporary Accounting Research; Review of Accounting Studies; and Auditing: A Journal of Practice and Theory, among others.
