Hien Hoang


I commenced as a Lecturer at the School of Accounting in February 2017. For my PhD, I investigate the assurance engagements incorporating both financial and non-financial information and their impact on investment decision making.

My primary research interests are in the area of behavioural decision making in CSR and Integrated Reporting context. I am currently teaching financial and management accounting at the undergraduate level.
