Brad is an Associate Professor in accounting, joining the Department in July 2003. His publications cover a range of topics in financial accounting, including the recording and reporting of information about scarce natural resources and the information content of traditional accounting and reporting techniques applied in ‘non-traditional’ settings such as governments, not-for-profit entities and AFL clubs.
Brad was part of a small team that developed the National Water Accounting Conceptual Framework which guides the development of water reporting in Australia. (collaborating partners: CPA Australia; ICAA; funding from ARC)
Other projects include the development of a carbon accounting model for the Royal Botanic Gardens and associated examination of the reporting of this information to: (i) meet compliance requirements; and (ii) be most useful for decisions made by diverse stakeholders.
Other projects currently in progress or under development include: (i) an examination of the reporting practices of small to medium entities in Australia (funded by the Australian Accounting Standards Board); and (ii) an examination of the association between social investment and core business by entities globally.
