Associate Professor of Management Accounting and

Michael W. Haley Distinguished Scholar



My research interests are in Management Accounting. I like to explore how Management Accounting interfaces with other business disciplines such as Operations Management, Financial Accounting, Tax and Purchasing. I am interested in the provision of  accounting information for decision making and performance measurement purposes, and have a special interest in costing system design.


I have won the 2014, 2013 and 2011 Greatest Impact on Management Accounting Practice Awards, the 2011 Notable Contributions to the Management Accounting Literature Award, the 2007 Best Paper Award of the American Accounting Association Conference and was a finalist for the 2001 EURO Excellence in Practice Award.

I teach the core Managerial Accounting course in the MBA program and a PhD course in Managerial Accounting Research. I have also taught a MBA elective on Financial Management of Health Care Providers, and various managerial accounting related classes at graduate and undergraduate level, as indicated on my cv.

I have won the 2016 MBA Core Faculty Champion in Sustainability Award, and the 2006 London School of Economics Teaching Prize.
