Honours and Awards
Highly Commended Award winner of the 2010 Emerald/EFMD Outstanding Doctoral Research Awards in the Interdisciplinary Accounting Research category.
My research interests are broadly within the area of social and environmental accounting developed through an active interest in and engagement with social reporting in third sector organisations. I have recently completed an ESRC Fellowship where I developed a toolkit with sport and leisure social enterprises to help measure their social impact and value.
My PhD "Enacting social accounting with a community enterprise: actualising hermeneutic conversation" at St Andrews University was chosen by the Editors of Accounting, Auditing & Accountability Journal, as being of exceptionally high quality and worthy of a Highly Commended Award in the 2010 Emerald/EFMD Outstanding Doctoral Research Awards in the Interdisciplinary Accounting Research category.
I am interested in business ethics and accountability and I am an active member of the Accountability, Governance, Ethics and Sustainability (AGES) research group.
I am currently working with a wide range of third sector organisations helping them to develop and understand social reporting and impact measurement.
