About Annette
I am a Lecturer in the School of Accountancy at QUT and a chartered accountant.  I hold a Bachelor of Business degree from the University of New England, a Master of Commerce from QUT and a doctorate from the University of Warwick.
My research interest is in improving public accountability, governance and management to help politicians, policy makers and industry respond to the challenges of financial, social and environmental sustainability.  These are interdisciplinary challenges and so my research and teaching crosses accounting, governance, politics and risk management.  I believe it’s important for academics to maintain close links with government and industry and so I’ve been on secondment to the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet (Canberra) and am currently an external advisor to a local government audit and risk committee.  Current research projects I’m involved in include: Improving the governance, integrity and financial accountability in local government (Colin Brain Fellowship), and promoting transparency in government spending decisions and public/private finance initiatives.  I am also working on a number of projects around governance and diversity.
Prior to joining QUT as a lecturer I taught at the London School of Economics (LSE)  in the department of Accounting.
I began my career as a tax undergraduate at a professional services firm and have worked for an ASX listed company in Sydney and Brisbane.
