Research Interests

  • Martin Altenburger mainly focuses on experimental research in accounting. His research incorporates theory from economics, psychology, and other social sciences to provide insights into accounting issues. In particular, he studies how social preferences, honesty, mood, and biases influence managers’ budget reporting behavior. He also investigates the effects of CSR activities and different contract frames on employees’ performance. Other work explores effective screening mechanisms in budgeting.
