Professor Cadman’s research focuses on the use and implications of accounting information on investment decisions, compensation design, corporate governance. He also studies how performance measures influence labor markets and regulation. His research on compensation consultants and CEO pay has been cited in an SEC reporting requirement and his research on the labor market implications of the Troubled Asset Relief Program has received substantial interest.

As a leading scholar, he is an editor of a top journal in his field.Professor Cadman has been invited for lectures throughout the world.

As a testament to the effectiveness of his ability to bring complex concepts to life, Dr. Cadman has earned several teaching awards.
