Brooke Elliott researches the psychology of investors, and how presentation of information affects their perceptions of firms’ value. Her work includes analysis of factors that influence both individual and institutional investors, with implications for the quality of their decision-making and, in some cases, the effectiveness of government regulation. Much of Professor Elliott’s work is based on live experiments, an approach that maximizes control of the information environment and allows her to make causal statements about the effect of an array of disclosure features on investors’ judgments and decisions. She is professor of accountancy, the Roedgers Fellow in Accounting, and the Ken Perry Faculty Fellow at the University of Illinois College of Business.
