CAROL ANN FRosrF
ard A. Coda Professor of Accounting
"All of my research is in the capital markets area, with a strong emphasis on inter-
national issues and financial reporting and disclosure," says Carol Ann Frost, who was an
associate professor of accounting and law with the University at Buffalo - State
Sniv. crsity of New York before joining UNT last fall.
I'he nationally recognized scholar is the first Bernard A. Coda Professor of Accounting
,It lNT and also serves as the doctoral coordinator for the Department of Accounting.
Frost - who has done extensive consulting work for clients such as Coopers and
Lybrand International and PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP and was the founder and CEO of
the independent research and consulting firm Global Capital Markets Access LLC - says
her consulting experiences have provided important background for her research projects.
"For example, my paper in the Journal of Accounting Research (analyzing international
stock exchanges) uses a data set developed from evidence gathered during my work for the World Federation of Stock
Exchanges," she says.
Frost earned her M.B.A. and Ph.D. in accounting from the University of Michigan and a bachelor's degree from the
University of British Columbia. She also served on the faculty at Dartmouth College and Washington University in St. Louis.
In addition to her consulting background, her research reflects her interest in regulatory issues. In some of her
most recent work, she and her co-authors are analyzing credit rating agency practices concerning the issuance of credit
watches, and she plans to investigate international dimensions of credit rating agency practices.
Another current project examines Nasdaq's enforcement of its listing rules. Frost has been a member of the
Nasdaq Listings Qualifications Panel since 2004.
' "^^ PAHO MANN
it professor of photography
I he works of Paho Mann have been exhibited in numerous places across the nation,
S , :, Ilt ng the Arizona State University Art Museum and the Tucson Museum of Art in
S\ /,na, Walker Art Center in Minnesota and the York Arts Center in Pennsylvania.
,Mann joined the photography faculty in the College of Visual Arts and Design
1 , f1l. He brings experience in web art, digital art and new media.
k "My work investigates the physical manifestation of individuality, ways photography
n . t cnts this manifestation and the effect of new technology on that representation,"
7 K." Vl.Mann says. "In this research, I combine contemporary media with traditional photo-
, - graphic practices, allowing each to extend the meaning of the other."
Mann earned a master's degree from Arizona State University and his bachelor's
degree from the University of New Mexico.
He currently is working on a public art commission for the city of Phoenix at a large recycling transfer station,
where tons of the city's recycling is sorted and shipped for reuse. For the project, he photographed 5,600 recycled
objects that included beverage bottles and junk mail. He is building a database of the images and will assign them key
words relating to the environmental impact of consumption, the benefit of recycling, and the type and visual appear-
ance of the objects.
"I will use these images and database to create large prints and an interactive web site to sort the recycling, and the
project will serve both as an aesthetic investigation and educational tool for the city," he says. "Creating connections
between objects and identity, the importance of thoughtful choice in what we do with these objects, and an interest in
how art functions in a diverse range of public spaces were all ideas that attracted me to the project."
