Sunder Takes the Reigns at AAA

Frank Professor Shyam Sunder of Yale University has been installed as the new president of the American Accounting Association. Dr. Sunder had previously taught at Cargenie Mellon, Chicago and Minnesota and has long been known in academic circles as an expert in experimental economics research. In his inaugurial address as president, Dr. Sunder celebrated accounting research as a way to understand business past and present and to project what may be in the future.

I met Dr. Sunder very briefly at a conference 15 or 18 years ago and he struck not only as a knowledgable researcher but as a kind and decent man as well. Best wishes to him and the AAA during the upcoming academic year!
