Background

Both my experience working as a Chartered Accountant and the research in auditing that I have been exposed to since beginning my doctoral studies have contributed to my interest in auditing. The auditing profession functions within a dynamic context that creates many challenges for auditors. I believe that research studying the judgement processes of auditors, as well as research studying policy and regulation issues, are critical to help the profession face these challenges by increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of the audit process.

I particularly enjoy teaching auditing and accounting theory courses as these courses mirror the changing audit environment. The state of knowledge in these areas evolves constantly, allowing me to incorporate important advances in research into the course content. By doing so, I hope to make students more aware of the interesting, challenging, and dynamic nature of the profession they have chosen.
