Philip Joos

Past-President EAA, Professor of Accounting, Tilburg University and TIAS School for Business and Society

My research is situated in the area of empirical financial accounting. My dissertation research at Stanford University focused on earnings prediction and accounting-based equity valuation, with a specific application in the pharmaceutical and biotech industry. I also investigated the role of earnings and R&D quality measures in a real options valuation model. Another research interest is in initial public offerings (IPOs), with a particular focus on the (failure) risk assessment and the pricing of the risk. Recently, I have conducted research on the effects of the implementation of IFRS (international financial reporting standards) and the information processing by financial analysts. I have published my articles in the Journal of Accounting Research, the Accounting Review, European Accounting Review, Journal of Business Finance and Accounting, Journal of Accounting, Auditing & Finance, Journal of International Financial Management and Accounting, Financial Management. I am the president of the EAA for the period 2017-2019 and have been a member of the EAA Management Committee since 2013. I am an associate editor of Asian-Pacific Journal of Accounting & Economics, associate editor of the special issue at the Journal of Accounting, Auditing & Finance of 2016, and member of the editorial board of Contemporary Accounting Research (CAR).
