Work in Process





I graduated with a PhD in the area of Accounting and Organisational Theory at the University of Manchester in July 2010. My supervisors were Professor Ted O¿Leary and Dr. Jodie Moll. The focus of the research was accounting and inter-firm relationships in the global aircraft industry. I am currently preparing a joint paper with Professor O¿Leary and Dr. Moll, intended for publication in an A-list journal, in which Professor O¿Leary has an extensive publishing record. This paper will br submitted in December 2011 for presentation at the EAA Conference in 2012.
