Personal profile


I joined Monash University in July 2016 after completing my doctorate degree at the Department of Accounting at Monash. I completed my PhD within Financial and Management Accounting where I examined the association between managerial ability, purchase obligations and cost of equity capital. Prior to my PhD, I have worked at The University of the South Pacific for six years. My research interests include archival research in financial accounting, management accounting and capital markets. Specifically, I am interested in issues such as financial reporting quality, investment efficiency, inventory management, purchase obligations, cost of equity, value relevance, stock price crash risk, managerial ability, managerial discretion and monitoring mechanisms. I have published in journals including Journal of Corporate Finance and Australasian Accounting, Business and Finance Journal.
