Hong, Philip




I have been teaching courses in financial and managerial accounting, federal income taxation and financial statement analysis at the both undergraduate and graduate levels at the University of Illinois (Chicago), the University of North Carolina (Charlotte) and Texas Tech University (Lubbock). Before joining academia, I worked for Citigroup as a financial reporting analyst. My research interests are mainly in finding out how accounting information is processed and used by capital market participants. I have published in Financial ReviewAccounting Horizons, Journal of International Accounting Research, Advances in Accounting and Journal of Business, Finance, and Accounting.
