Professor Niessner’s main research interests are behavioral finance, financial social networks, and online media. In her recent work, she applies methods from linguistic psychology to identify fake news on knowledge sharing platforms, and to examine their impact on financial markets. In her other work, she uses opinions from a social network of investors, to develop a new measure of investor disagreement and examine the extent to which different investment philosophies lead to more volatility in the stock market. Her research has been featured in the IR Magazine and the Wall Street Journal.
