Kurt H. Gee is an Assistant Professor of Accounting at The Pennsylvania State University, where he teaches financial accounting to students in the Smeal College of Business and conducts research on how companies communicate financial information to investors. Dr. Gee’s research focuses on issues of importance to accounting policymakers, and he is an expert on company reporting practices that are not in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (i.e., non-GAAP). His research is published in premier academic journals including Journal of Accounting Research, The Accounting Review, Journal of Accounting and Economics, Management Science, and Contemporary Accounting Research.
While affiliated with Penn State, Dr. Gee spent 2018-2019 at the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) as the organization’s inaugural Post-Doctoral Fellow. In this role, Dr. Gee served as a liaison between accounting academia and the FASB and worked closely with FASB staff to incorporate insights from academic research into the standard-setting process. As a result of this experience, Dr. Gee views accounting academia as part of a larger ecosystem of accounting practice, and he strives to teach and conduct research in a way that contributes to both academia and this larger ecosystem.
Dr. Gee received his PhD from Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business. Prior to studying at Stanford, he graduated from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, with a master’s degree in accountancy.
