My research is concerned with examining the 'disciplinary effects' of accounting on individuals, organisations and society. I adopt a political economy framework to understand the accountability and performance implications of accounting and its institutional structures. Issues of power-relationships, visibility and transparency are important in my critical research which aims at questioning the status quo by asking 'why' we do what we do.

My research outputs have been published in leading world class academic journals, books and magazines of professional accountancy bodies.
