Vivek Raval

Throughout my life I have been interested in business and economics. I currently conduct research and teach about the role of financial accounting in the capital markets. I’ve investigated various accounting topics such as how earnings information is consumed by investors, how firm specific information releases can help identify bellwethers, and the sources of earnings conservatism. More recently I’ve been interested in social issues in accounting, particularly the role of human capital in the firm.

I earned my bachelor’s degree from Georgetown University, my MBA from Dartmouth College, and my Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina. I’ve also worked as an auditor at KPMG and as a product manager at Microsoft. I am currently at the University of Illinois at Chicago, where I conduct research and teach Intermediate Accounting I to undergraduate students each fall.

I’m also interested in photography, running, and old school hip-hop. I’m working on learning German and how to be great at life.
