Doctoral Student

Henry Christian Eyring

Henry Eyring is a doctoral student in Accounting and Management at Harvard Business School. He studies the use of performance measurement, feedback, and disclosure to ellicit improvement. His dissertation focuses on the effects of disclosing doctor ratings and reviews. That analysis of 4.8 million visits tests for effects on ratings performance, process efficiency, health outcomes, costs, web-traffic, patient visits, and revenue. Doing so extends research on disclosure by looking at economic effects other than investment within capital markets. He has also conducted field experiments of the application of behavioral economics to performance feedback design in online education. Those experiments extend limited empirical evidence of the effectiveness of performance dashboards and how this depends on design elements. His educational background is in math and economics, with work experience in private equity and management consulting.
