Mary Billings joined New York University Stern School of Business as an Assistant Professor of Accounting in 2007.
Prior to joining Stern, she worked as a consultant at PricewaterhouseCoopers, LLP. In her research, Professor Billings explores the role that accounting information plays in shaping the behavior of corporate insiders, institutional investors and capital market participants.
Her study examining the stock market response to material weakness disclosures under Sections 302 and 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 recently appeared in The Accounting Review. In a forthcoming paper to appear in The Review of Accounting Studies, she examines the sophistication of the options market by investigating the extent to which traders anticipate the stock market's sensitivity to earnings news.
Professor Billings earned her Ph.D. from Indiana University in 2007.
