Jennifer Blouin, professor of accounting at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, is the Kenan Institute’s newest Senior Faculty Fellow. Blouin’s research, which has been published widely in major academic and professional journals, centers on the role of taxation in firm decision making. She presents frequently on the intersection of business and taxes, most recently serving as a panelist for Effects of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act on Investment Incentives and Financial Reporting, a joint conference sponsored by the Kenan Institute-affiliated UNC Tax Center and the Tax Policy Center of the Urban Institute and Brookings Institution.

Blouin is no stranger to UNC-Chapel Hill, having received a doctorate in accounting from Kenan-Flagler Business School in 2004.
