Research interests

As a former practicing accountant, and a current accounting academic, my principal research interests lie in that discipline. I have two areas of interest, which I believe are connected. My first is in contemporary issues in accounting, mostly concerned with corporate governance and accountability. I am specifically interested in issues that I imagine are discussed at board room tables and meetings of chief executives. My master’s thesis concentrated on an important external aspect of corporate governance, the external auditors; the focus of my PhD thesis was on voluntary corporate disclosures of greenhouse gas emissions; and I have two co-authored works on gender diversity. One is at the boards of director level, and the other is at the level of boards’ sub-committees, the audit committee. Another co-authored paper, the result of one of my Master of Philosophy student’s research, encompassed the stewardship role of institutional investors, and will be published in 2017. Current works in progress or awaiting reviews from publishers also fit within this corporate governance and accountability framework.

My second area of interest is in equipping accounting graduates with the skills they need in a dynamic and uncertain business world. While this connects indirectly to corporate governance and accountability, it is in no way a weak link, as today’s students are likely to be tomorrow’s business leaders and members of boards. I have completed two education-related research projects. The first was on lecture-capture technology in an accounting course, and was published in 2015. The second is on team-based learning, which has been accepted for publication.
