Oriane is a Canadian CPA with a background in public accounting, audit, and financial reporting. She obtained her MSc from HEC Montréal and her PhD from Queen’s University.

Her research explores the experience of the diverse stakeholders involved in audit and governance processes, including auditors, audit committee members, and regulators. Using qualitative methods, she analyzes how these individuals make sense of their role, adapt to the changing environment, and respond to the rules and regulatory requirements that govern their occupation.

Oriane has received funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, the Canadian Foundation for Governance Research, and the Foundation of Quebec Chartered Professional Accountants. She has also been working with CPA Canada’s evaluations teams for the Common Final Examination and CPA Professional Education Program.

Dr. Couchoux is accepting students (MSc and PhD) interested in research on auditing, governance, and the accounting profession using qualitative methods.
