Before becoming an academic I trained to be a chartered accountant with one of the biggest global firms, Coopers & Lybrand (now part of PWC), in London.  Following qualification I wanted to view the world and worked as a lecturer in Zambia. Before moving to Portsmouth I was a Senior Lecturer at the University of Southampton and had spells as a member of the secretariat at the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales and at the Australian National University in Canberra.  I’m now mainly retired but keep up my relationship with Portsmouth through my position as Professor Emeritus. 

I am an active researcher and have presented papers at numerous research conferences both in the UK and overseas and have visiting positions at Royal Holloway University of London and the University of Southampton. 

Teaching Responsibilities

My main research interests are in the broad area of the regulation of financial reporting and corporate governance. I recently co-edited an issue of the Journal of Management and Governance on Business Models, Governance and Financial Reporting.
