Research interests

My research is on two inter-related themes around social responsibility:

Firstly, I am interested in issues of gender and diversity in relation to the professions, particularly accounting. i have published widely on issues relating to accounting and gender. This strand of research addresses identity and its relationship with gender; the body and embodiment within organisations; the juxtaposition of professional and personal identities; and the conduct of the professions and professional services firms.

A second strand of research is on ‘Corporate Social Responsibility’, which links to my interests in social and environmental accounting; sustainability and responsibility; and issues of governance and accountability.

I am currently working on linking these two areas through work on gender equality and sustainability.

I am also interested in reflexive research methodologies, including narrative, autobiography, oral history and ethnography.
