My major research interest is in the social organization of the accountancy profession. In particular, my research seeks to understand the strategies deployed by professional accounting bodies to differentiate themselves and achieve monopoly or elite status in the market for expert accounting labour. My research has an international breath and includes studies of the profession in Ireland, England, Trinidad and Tobago and Canada. My research is also historically and sociological informed and specifically looks at the manner in which national bases of social exclusion such as religion, social class, race, nationality or immigration status, interact with professional structures to achieve professional closure.
