Carmen Olsen holds a master of accounting and auditing from NHH and within a 3,5 years period finished her PhD entitled “The Challenge of Being Professionally Skeptical”. Her research is inspired by her presentations (over 20) in international conferences (US and Europe), shorter stays abroad (e.g. Oxford, Arhus, …) and professional publications to the auditing society in Norway. Her empirical research is of importance both as contributions to research on auditors’ professional skepticism and in providing insights for the profession and regulators into the behavior of auditors. Besides using traditional accounting perspectives and methods, her research portfolio encompasses neuroscientific research perspectives and she has worked with researchers from different disciplines to offer an interesting interpretation of prior literature on professional skepticism. Prior to her PhD, she has worked as a consultant at the tax authorities and as an auditor
