Baaske teaching experience is with financial accounting, auditing and accounting information systems (AIS).
Her research broadly contributes to the auditing and accounting information systems (AIS) judgment and decision-making literature, most often using an experimental methodology. More specifically, much of her research interest is in areas where auditors may fail to recognize risks or audit issues due to insufficient skillsets or insufficient levels of skeptical cognitive processing. (Focus areas: Data analytics/visualizations, risk assessment and ESG assurance)
Baaske has experience as a senior auditor from PwC in Chicago.
