  • the development of the accounting and the accounting profession in international contexts, and
  • critical perspectives on the role and place of accounting, especially accounting education and training, in social and professional change and development. 

I would also be interested in supervising student research into other areas of  accounting education (particularly in relation to skills development, the use of information and learning technologies and the effects of change on the accounting education landscape) and research on the application of information systems in the field of accounting.
