Research

I hold a PhD in Business Law and I am currently Senior Lecturer at the Department of Business Administration at the School of Economics and Management. My work focuses on transnational regulation, corporate reporting, auditing and assurance. My current research projects encompass regulatory issues relating to emerging corporate reporting and assurance practices, ethical codes for the accountancy profession from a historical and contemporary perspective and the development of the global accountancy profession. I am also involved in supervising PhD students.

Prior to joining academia, I have had extensive experience working in accounting and finance in Asia, Europe and the United States. I started my academic career upon receiving scholarships from Stiftelsen FARs Jubileumsfond & Reidar Peters Stipendium. My doctoral dissertation focused on the development and use of global standards on sustainability assurance, analysing the phenomenon from both socio-legal & social science perspectives.
