My current research is divided into three areas:1. Corporate Governance and Executive RemunerationI am currently preparing manuscripts on board decision-making processes, executive remuneration policies and practices, disclosure of remuneration, and corporate governance codes of best practice. These papers draw on data from New Zealand, Australia, United States of America and United Kingdom.2. Management AccountingI am currently preparing a manuscript on management accounting. It presents evidence from a survey of NZ Chief Financial Officers, concerning the relevance of management accounting theories to practice. This research finds that practitioners (CFOs) believe that management accounting theories should be taught and researched in universities and that these theories are practical relevant. 3. Accounting EducationI am currently preparing manuscripts on the effectiveness of various innovative teaching methods (e.g. the use of business simulation games and student-centred learning). The research aims to understand which teaching methods produce the best learning outcomes for accounting students.
