I investigate the informational value of auditing in charitable organisations for my PhD dissertation. My primary research interests include the role of audit-quality differentiation in the not-for-profit sector; international auditing/assurance issues; and non-financial assurance. My work has been published at leading accounting journals and at the websites of standard-setters including the Australian Accounting Standards Board (AASB) and Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (AUASB).
My teaching interests combine the areas of accounting and auditing. I am currently the lecturer of the course: Auditing and Assurance Services. I have also taught Financial Accounting for both undergraduate and postgraduate students.
