Prof. Dr. Ulf Schiller

Main research activities

In his research, Prof. Dr. Schiller focusses on the role of accounting information in markets. To this end, analytical models are deployed. Particular emphasis is on the influence of specific properties of accounting standards (particular recognition or measurement rules) on market equilibria. The aim is to derive empirically testable descriptive results or normative results that can be used for improving accounting regulation.
