Full Profile

I have worked at UCLan for over five years and as well as being a Senior Lecturer in accounting I am the course leader for the BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance degree.

Originally after qualifying as an ACCA accountant I worked for 5 years in the housing association sector becoming a management accountant. I then moved in teaching, and before joining UCLan spent over a decade at Edge Hill University ending up as Senior Lecturer.

During this time I have carried out a number of roles and have experience as: an external examiner -for masters programmes; an external panel expert in validations in the UK and Hong Kong; been an internal panel member at a number of internal validations –in business and accounting.

I completed a part time PhD at Sheffield University Management School, bringing together my interest in accounting and the environment. I have research interests in the following areas: social and environmental accounting; the accounting profession; audit quality; pedagogy and sustainability. I have written an on-line introductory undergraduate book on social and environmental accounting and am working on a number of research papers. I have presented at a number of conferences including at BAFA.

I have been the chair of the Lancashire and Cumbria ACCA from 2018, and am a member of BAFA.
