Tamara Lambert joined the Department of Accounting at Lehigh University in 2013. She is interested in how formal and informal accountability systems (such as performance reviews, regulation, control systems), and the affective reactions that they elicit, shape decision making and financial reporting/auditing outcomes. Her research highlights include publications in The Accounting Review (forthcoming), Journal of Accounting Research, Contemporary Accounting Research, Accounting, Organizations and Society, and Auditing: A Journal of Practice & Theory. Her work has been featured in popular business press outlets (e.g., Marketwatch, CFO Magazine). She is an associate editor for Auditing: A Journal of Practice & Theory, and on the editorial board of Behavioral Research in Accounting since 2014.
Professor Lambert’s teaching interests are in financial accounting and auditing. She worked as an auditor for Deloitte from 2001-2004 and is a licensed CPA in the state of Pennsylvania (inactive).
