Bio
Matthew D. Pickard is an Assistant Professor of Accounting at the University of New Mexico. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Arizona in Management Information Systems. He holds an M.B.A. in Management Information Systems and a B.S. in Computer Engineering from Brigham Young University. His research leverages embodied conversational agents (i.e., virtual humans) to maximize voluntary self-disclosure and change attitudes and behaviors. He seeks to apply his research to contexts such as auditing and fraud investigations.

In his personal life, Matt is first and foremost a family man. In his spare time, he enjoys camping, woodworking, and beekeeping.
