Matthew Spiegel's research ranges widely with publications in the areas of market microstructure, asset pricing, real estate, corporate finance, and experimental economics.

His empirical work has included the development of statistical methods that can estimate the impact of local characteristics on housing returns and for identifying when and if a particular mutual fund will generate above market returns. These articles have won the ANBAR Management Intelligence Citation of Excellence, the Michael Brennan Best Paper Award and the Ross Best Paper Award. In 2015 his overall body of work was recognized with Eastern Finance Association’s Distinguished Scholar Award.
