She is particularly interested in how different parties strategically communicate their information, and how accounting information is used in firms' and investors' decision-making processes. Her current work examines how analysts' reputational concerns affect their incentives to acquire information.

Professor Meng received a B.A. in Economics from the Central University of Finance and Economics, and an M.A. in Accounting from Beijing University. She expects to receive a Ph.D. in Accounting from Columbia Business School.
