Todd has walked the path of accounting, from undergraduate education to public practice, from academic research to graduate instruction. He loves searching for why decision makers do what they do and how to help them make better decisions. His research has focused on the effects of feedback, incentives, and control systems on performance and how personalities might interact with these. He has also researched how control and evaluations system features affect decision-making. Todd enjoys being with his family more than accounting and playing basketball only very slightly less.
Todd's research is published in Contemporary Accounting Research, Accounting, Organizations and Society, Management Accounting Research, Journal of Management Accounting Research, and Advances in Accounting.
