Research Interests

Her research interests lie in the area of critical and historical analysis of institutions and accountability. One current area of research is the financial analysis of public policy. She has carried out research into the private finance initiative and public private partnerships, in particular the financial evaluation and reporting of PFI/PPP projects both in the UK and in Europe. Another area of research is investigating from a disciplinary perspective the relationship between professional development and academic knowledge in accounting, including the development of professionalisation within accounting.

Additional Information

Anne's current teaching interests lie in the area of financial reporting, corporate governance and business analysis.

Anne welcomes PhD proposals which use qualitative methodologies to address issues of interest around PPPs and new forms of partnerships between the public and private sectors.
