Cassie Mongold
2022-2023 FASB Post Doctoral Fellow

My name is Cassie Mongold and I am currently a the Post Doctoral Fellow at the Financial Accounting Standards Board. Following this fellowship, in the summer of 2023 I will join the faculty of the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. 

My research focuses on individual judgment and decision making, using psychology as a framework to help understand how individuals will behave in an accounting context. My research methodology is experimentation, which allows me to provide ex-ante feedback to standard setters and regulators on potential changes to the accounting environment. 

I am a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin's Accounting PhD program. I am a licensed CPA in the state of Oklahoma, where, prior to pursuing my PhD, I spent four years as an auditor with Ernst and Young. During that time, I was also an adjunct at the University of Oklahoma, where I taught courses related to financial accounting.
