Research Interests

The main them of my research is the applicability of private sector models of governance, accountability and financial reporting in a public sector setting. My focus is the acute hospital sector which, because of the unique characteristics of the NHS setting and the co-existence of both public and private sector organizational forms, offers the potential for research findings to be of relevance in both the wider public and private sector environments.

Research topics include; accruals quality, auditor type and achievement of performance targets; board composition, CEO pay, gender and organizational performance; the impact of performance management systems on financial performance and accountability; the model of the reporting entity; earnings management, financial reporting quality, and governance.
