I joined the University of Dundee in September 2010. Prior to this I completed my PhD on charity governance at the University of Edinburgh. I have also held research posts at the University of Edinburgh and Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh.

My research interests are in the area of accounting and governance in charitable organisations. My current research focuses on the relationship between charities and their funders, with a specific focus on outcome measurement, and also beneficiary participation in charity governance.

My teaching interests are in the areas of management accounting, corporate governance, public sector accounting, and financial reporting theory.
