Biography

Kirsten joined the Adam Smith Business School in 2002, from the University of Paisley, where she gained her Bachelor of Accountancy degree with Honours. She worked as a Research Assistant for fifteen months, until she resumed her academic career on the doctoral programme at Paisley and was offered a lectureship at Glasgow in 2002, being awarded a PhD in 2003.

Her main current research interests relate to both accounting and business history, including

  • structure and strategy in organisations
  • evolution of managerial hierarchies
  • changes over time in accounting and management accounting practices
  • impact of family involvement in organisations.

This research examines a range of industries, as diverse as the retail industry and shipbuilding. This research aims to provide insights into the changing nature of accounting and business practice, to identify possible failures in British business practices and provide insight into practices which may be beneficial to organisations struggling in the current economic climate.

Kirsten has taken part in a number of specialist accounting and business history conferences (USA, Cardiff, Porto), being invited to present and also to chair sessions. She has also been asked to deliver Professional Development Workshops at several British Academy of Management Conferences. She is on the Editorial Board of the Scottish Business and Industrial History Journal, and recently became a member of the Executive Committee of the Business Archives Council of Scotland. Kirsten currently acts as a reviewer for several academic journals in the Accounting and Business History subject area. She is a member of the Academy of Accounting Historians and the Association of Business Historians.

Currently Kirsten is a Senior Advisor of Studies, BAcc Admissions Officer and Level One Co-ordinator.
