In June 2020, Shannon Garavaglia will join the FASB as the Board’s 2020 post-doctoral fellow. Shannon will graduate from the University of Texas at Austin with a PhD in accountancy this spring. After spending a year with the FASB, she will join the faculty of the Katz Graduate School of Business and College of Business Administration at the University of Pittsburgh (which generously granted the necessary leave). Shannon will be the third PhD graduate to serve as part of this program
, which brings highly motivated recent PhD graduates to work on the FASB staff for one year.
