This paper describes my professional journey focusing on human aspects of fraud and corporate governance. I describe the initial “light bulb” moments that highlighted the importance of people and the years of human-focused fraud and governance research and teaching since those events. I use five themes (skills, signals, relationships, fairness, and persuasion [with bad intent]) to summarize insights from a variety of human-focused research projects in fraud and governance and to provide avenues for future research. My overall goal is to use my professional journey to highlight key human-focused research themes, avenues for additional exploration, and ways to use research in class.
