AIS Doctoral Candidates

Working on a dissertation is hard work. It takes a serious time commitment, not only from the doctoral candidate, but also from committee members. For doctoral candidates looking to work on an Accounting Information Systems (AIS) dissertation, finding committee members with AIS expertise in their department can be challenging. That is why this site was created in order to encourage and match AIS doctoral candidates with senior AIS scholars who would be willing to provide the time commitment necessary for a successful dissertation process.   

The scholars listed below are willing to help serve on dissertations committees, subject to having expertise in your area and not being committed to too many committees.  If you are at an institution that cannot fully support your AIS work, email one of the people below with information about your dissertation and how you want them to help.

Letter from the President

Hello all,

I am looking forward to serving as your president this year. I want to start by thanking my predecessors, Rob Pinsker and Tina Loraas, for their excellent service and commitment to our section. I also want to thank all the new volunteers for the 2017-2018 academic year. I greatly appreciate your willingness to serve and move the AIS section forward.

In the upcoming year, I plan to continue Rob’s work regarding our commitment as a section to mentoring AIS Ph.D. students. I would like to start by taking this opportunity to highlight several important initiatives that I believe will be valuable resources to our new AIS scholars. First, our newly created websites for AIS Research Proposals and Dissertation Committee Support have been launched. AIS researchers looking to improve their research can submit one-page proposals to get early feedback from senior AIS researchers. AIS doctoral candidates who need dissertation committee support can request help from senior AIS researchers at other institutions via our new website. We hope making these important connections available will encourage more Ph.D. students to join our AIS community and continue to improve our body of research.
