Ivanova, Mariya

Assistant Professor
Department of Accounting

Mariya Ivanova joined the Department of Accounting in September 2017. She holds a PhD in Business Administration and Management (major Financial Accounting) from Bocconi University, Milan, Italy and MSc in Accounting from Northern Illinois University, IL, USA. Her research interests lie at the intersection of financial reporting, corporate governance, financial fraud, and debt contracting. Prior to joining the Department, she was a lecturer in Accounting and Financial Statement Analysis at Bocconi University and spent a term as a visiting researcher at the London School of Economics, London, UK. 

Mariya's current research projects are broadly related to two main research themes:  i) the effects of corporate governance on firm behavior and outcomes; and ii) financial reporting and governance of firms operating in the extractive industries (mining and oil and gas). Since September 2017, Mariya is a recipient of the Tore Browaldhs foundation fellowship.
