Jingjing Huang has been appointed assistant professor in the Department of Accounting and Information Systems at Virginia Tech’s Pamplin College of Business.

Huang is one of nine new faculty members at Pamplin this fall. Their addition reflects the college’s commitment to hiring tenured and tenure-track faculty to further strengthen its teaching, research, and business outreach, particularly in the areas of business intelligence and analytics, innovation through entrepreneurship, and international programs.

Huang received her Ph.D. in accounting in June from the University of Oregon. She has a master’s degree in accounting from Iowa State University and a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Shanghai University of Electric Power in China.

Her dissertation examined tax incentives for foreign earnings management and their implications for pricing of foreign earnings. Her research interests are in financial reporting, international taxation, technological innovation, corporate governance, and corporate finance.

Her work in progress includes a study of how block ownership by institutions affect corporate governance, using evidence from the valuation of a firm's cash holdings; and an analysis of the role of tax, intellectual property rights, and collaborative research networks in research and development.

Huang has worked as a federal tax associate at KPMG in Des Moines, Iowa, and was an accounting intern at Deloitte and Touche in London and at HNI Corporation in Iowa and Hong Kong.

She received doctoral fellowships from the Deloitte Foundation and the University of Oregon.
