Naveen Jindal School of Management

Charles and Nancy Davidson Distinguished Professor of Accounting and Information Management

Dr. Ali has researched various issues concerning the role of financial accounting in capital markets. He has examined systematic mispricing of stocks due to the inefficient use of accounting data by investors and whether arbitrageurs, such as mutual funds, profitably exploit such mispricing.  He has also examined management and firm characteristics that influence the earnings management and voluntary corporate disclosure behavior. His research has also explored the effectiveness of U.S. securities litigation laws.
