A Conversation with Dr. Chen
What draws you to your discipline?
“Accounting is the language of the business. To understand the business world, language is the key to open the door. Another reason is that I like dealing with numbers.”
Tell us about a project you are currently working on or recently completed.
“I am working on a project related to CEO attitude, which investigates whether firms with aggressive CEOs have more aggressive tax policy. The findings are interesting and I find that firms try to avoid taxes if CEOs are more aggressive.”
Tell us a little about yourself (educational background, research interests, etc.)
“Besides teaching, my favorite is traveling. My to-do list always includes road trip. I plan to visit all the national parks in the future.”
