About me

I obtained a first class honours degree in Chemistry and Mathematics (1973) followed by a Chemistry PhD (1981), both from Exeter University. I qualified as a chartered accountant (ACA) in 1979, having trained with Thomson McLintock (now KPMG). I taught professional accountancy examinations at Reed College of Accountancy for 18 months before joining the University of Stirling in 1981. As course director of the successful MSc in Investment Analysis programmes at Stirling (1989-99, 2003-05) I was instrumental in setting up, developing and managing both full-time and part-time programmes. I was double prize-winner for paper presentations at INQUIRE UK seminars. Associate Editor of British Accounting Review and ad hoc reviewer for over 20 different journals. Other Roles
