    Biography

    I had worked in accountancy in China and the U.K. for over five years before pursuing an academic career. During my study overseas, I became very interested in the experience of international students at U.K. business schools, and have since undertaken research on this topic and others including intercultural communication in academic contexts and language used by professional accountancy bodies. Since joining Coventry University in 2012, I have been involved in teaching financial accounting, research and study skills, dissertation supervision and providing academic, and pastoral support for international students. I have been working closely with internationalisation personnel at the University to identify and respond to needs of international students. I have designed and delivered a series of support sessions for these students which has been highly appreciated by the University and was awarded the Coventry Excellence Award 2015.

    Vision Statement

    I have undertaken research on the following subjects and am interested in further research into them:

    • International students on business, finance and accounting courses in the U.K.
    • language used by professional accountancy bodies
    • intercultural communication in academic contexts

    I am particularly interested in exploring ways to apply discourse analytic methods in studies of accounting and accountancy.
