Dr. Mohammad’s research interests are in financial reporting and capital markets. His research examines the role that financial reporting and disclosures play in capital markets; the role of financial analysts as information intermediaries and the properties of their earnings forecasts; and executive compensation. His recent publications focused on the relation between financial reporting and information asymmetry, the impact of individual analyst characteristics such as experience, effort, and work load on the properties of their earnings forecasts. He also examined career concerns of financial analysts and its impact on their performance. His latest research project examines whether analyst earnings forecasting ability is only firm-specific. Moreover, he has also developed an interest in executive compensation research and business ethics. Dr. Mohammad’s publications appeared in The Accounting Review, Journal of Accounting, Auditing, and Finance, and the Journal of Business Ethics.
