[00:01:36.974]As a PhD students and a research assistant,
[00:01:39.720]I have had the opportunity to work closely
[00:01:42.670]with faculty mentors who were in each of my research project
[00:01:47.660]from doctoral seminars.
[00:01:49.960]I had the honor to coauthor with faculty,

[00:02:34.680]and exposed me to a variety of literature streams.
[00:02:37.820]In particular, the introductory PhD seminar
[00:02:40.750]helped me as I entered academia from private industry.

[00:02:49.260]audit and managerial accounting research.
