Professional memberships and associations


I teach in the area of strategic management accounting which focuses on providing information for managers and decision makers. This connects with my research by showing how accounting is involved in the creation of new performance measures and governance-accountability frameworks in organisations.  I also teach around climate change, sustainability and governance, and was invited to be one of the first to teach on the LSE's new first-year unit LSE100: Thinking like a social scientist.

I'm also interested in the scholarship of teaching. My current project is looking at the use of the viva voce (oral exam) in online assessment.  I think the viva is a terrific way of getting to know my students, and where they are in their current knowledge journey.

I'm really passionate about encouraging more undergraduate students to consider a higher research degree and so I really enjoy teaching/supervising Vacation Research Experience Students to encourage their interest in research.
