I am a Professor of Accounting and Finance at Macquarie Business School, Sydney. I previously worked for over 15 years as an independent business consultant across a wide range of industries before joining Sydney University after completing my PhD in 2008. My PhD entitled Intellectual Capital in Action: Australian Studies won the prestigious Emerald/EFMD Outstanding Doctoral Research Award for 2008 for the Knowledge Management category. I continue to research on the topic of intellectual capital, non-financial accounting and reporting, innovation, research methods and academic writing. My research activities link closely to management, accounting, and scholarly practice. I began working at Macquarie University in December 2013.
