Personal profile


I am an Associate Professor of Accounting at Macquarie University, Sydney. I worked for over 15 years as an independent business consultant across a wide range of industries before joining academia after completing my Ph.D. in 2008. My Ph.D. 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.


Since starting my thesis in 2006, I have achieved an outstanding record as the author or co-author of over 60 peer-reviewed academic journal articles, publishing in prestigious journals such as Accounting Auditing and Accountability Journal, British Accounting Review, Journal of Intellectual Capital, Public Management Review and forthcoming articles in Financial Accountability and Management and The Journal of Business Ethics. I have co-authored with many authors from different countries such as Australia, Italy, USA, Canada, Russia and China. My current research activities include projects in Australia, Japan, Germany and Italy.


I have four times won Highly Commended Paper awards for the Journal of Intellectual Capital (2008, 2013, 2014 and 2015), twice for the Journal of Accounting and Organizational Change (2014, 2016) and once for the Journal of Knowledge Management (2016). I also won the Outstanding Reviewer Award for the VINE journal (2013), Journal of Accounting and Organizational Change (2015) and Accounting, Auditing and Accountability Journal (2016). I have also twice won the Emerald Journals Citations of Excellence Award (2015, 2016)


I am currently the Associate Editor of the Journal of Intellectual Capital, and Meditari Accountancy Research, and the Editor of the Electronic Journal of Knowledge Management. I am also a member of the Editorial Board of Advice for the Accounting Auditing and Accountability Journal, Journal of Knowledge Management, VINE: The Journal of Information and Knowledge Management Systems, Managerial Auditing Journal and Journal of Accounting and Organizational Change.
