Lamia Chourou holds a Ph.D. in Accounting from Queen's University (2014) and a Ph.D. in Finance from the University of Tunis (2008). Her research focuses on capital markets and in particular corporate disclosure, financial reporting quality and analysts’ forecasts. She has published in referred journals such as the Journal of Accounting and Public Policy, Journal of Business Ethics, International Review of Financial Analysis and Canadian Journal of Administrative Sciences. Her current research funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) aims to probe the incentives and obligations of commercial banks to identify financial misrepresentation by their clients and explore the role of both individual banker and institutional relationships in arising suspicions of fraud. Professor Chourou was previously a Teaching Fellow at Queen's School of Business. She taught intermediate financial accounting at Queen's School of Business and several related courses overseas. She is the recipient of several prestigious awards and scholarships from, among others, the Government of Ontario, Queen's University and CAAA.
