Jennifer Sustersic Stevens

Assistant Professor


Jennifer’s primary research interests include financial reporting and the credit markets, corporate governance, and accounting fraud/irregularities, with a current focus on credit default swaps (CDSs). Her current research investigates how a new, opaque market for credit derivatives (CDSs) impacts the use of accounting information in debt contracting. Jennifer holds a Ph.D. in Accounting & MIS from The Ohio State University, as well as an undergraduate and master’s degree in Accountancy from Miami University (OH). Prior to entering the Ph.D. program, Jennifer worked in fraud and forensic accounting for Ernst & Young in Chicago, followed by a boutique consulting firm, Alvarez & Marsal. Jennifer is a CPA licensed in Illinois and a member of the American Accounting Association.
