Personal profile

Research interests

I am currently the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) of Bond University with oversight of all academic matters. My position encompasses the portfolios of the Pro Vice-Chancellor (Learning and Teaching) (position held since March 2014) and the Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research) (position held since October 2015). I have been the Chair of the Bond University Women’s Network since January 2014.

I was the Chair of Academic Senate of Bond University for four years (2012-2016). The Academic Senate is the peak advisory body to the Vice Chancellor on academic matters and the highest forum for academic discussion and debate within Bond University. As the Chair of Academic Senate, I oversee all of the University level Academic Committees and am responsible for all Academic Policies.

I was the Head, School of Business, Bond University November 2009 – December 2012 (when the school was disestablished). The School was comprised of six departments: Accounting; Economics and Statistics; Finance; Global Strategy, Entrepreneurship and Family Business; Management; and Marketing. The School had approximately 100 equivalent full-time academic staff.

I was a Commissioner of the New Zealand Securities Commission 2003-2011. In 2005, I was appointed as a member of the New Zealand Securities Commission Audit Committee and was the Chairman of this committee from 2008 until 2011. During my time at the Commission the decision was made for NZ to adopt International Financial Reporting Standards and we issued the first Corporate Governance Guidelines for NZ.

I held three positions at the Victoria of University of Wellington prior to joining Bond University. I was the Head of the School of Accounting and Commercial Law from June 2006 – October 2009. I was the Research Professor in the School of Accounting and Commercial Law from 2000 – 2006. I was the founding Director of the Centre for Accounting, Governance and Taxation Research from 2001 – 2007.

I am a Chartered Accountant, Fellow of CPA Australia and have twenty-eight years experience as a University academic. I commenced my academic career at Queensland University of Technology, Australia, in 1989, where I remained until accepting my appointment at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. My research interests are in the areas of corporate governance, business leadership diversity and financial accounting. I have published articles in numerous international refereed journals including Accounting, Auditing and Accountability Journal, Financial Accountability and Management, Corporate Governance: An International Review, Accounting, and Finance and the International Journal of Accounting Research.

I was the New Zealand President of the Accounting and Finance Association of Australia and New Zealand (2005 – 2007) and President Elect (2003-2004). I am a past co-editor of the “Pacific Accounting Review” (2002 -2006), a member of the editorial board of “Accounting and Finance” since 2002, and a member of the advisory committee of the Annual Asia-Pacific Conference on Accounting Issues since 2007.

I am a Gold Coast Business Events Ambassador for Gold Coast Tourism. I am a founding trustee of the Governance Education Trust, a New Zealand based NGO established to promote capacity building for the governance of sustainable natural resource development in developing countries including Fiji, Vietnam, Mongolia, Tanzania and Nigeria financed by the World Bank and other international organisations.
