Bio

Eddy Cardinaels (1975) is full Professor of accounting at Tilburg University and part-time professor at KU Leuven.

Other experimental work focuses on drivers of honest reporting and social motives in inter-firm negotiations. He also conducts archival work on corporate governance examining how social connections between board members affect financial reporting, how companies use their networks to engage in tax avoidance and factors that drive (excess) compensation. Eddy has published in leading journals such as The Accounting Review, Journal of Accounting Research, and Accounting, Organizations and Society, and Review of Accounting Studies. Eddy’s work has been recognized with several prestigious awards including the greatest impact on practice award (AAA).
