Dr. Hucks's current research interests involve information asymmetry in capital markets, and the role of signaling through disclosure in attenuating those asymmetries. He is interested in the various methods through which capital market participants attempt to overcome information asymmetry when making allocation decisions, and in assessing the utility of those signals from the perspective of the investor. Ideally, he would like his work to be useful to the capital market participants themselves. Dr. Hucks joined Eastern Michigan University in 2015 after completing his doctoral studies at the University of Michigan. Prior to coming to EMU, Dr. Hucks has taught at the University of Michigan, where he was awarded the Thomas William Leabo Award for commitment to teaching, as well as at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he was awarded the David E. Hoffman Award for teaching excellence. Dr. Hucks earned his CPA while working for PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.
