Bio

Eagle is a lecturer with the Discipline of Accounting since 2013. His specialisation is in financial accounting and critical accounting theory. Before joining USYD, he was a lecturer in accounting at the University of Wollongong where he received his PhD. His research explores the relationship between accounting practices and regulation. In particular, his work has focused on the development of Chinese accounting standards and their impact on social, political and economic conditions within China. With reference to broader concepts of neoliberalism and hegemony, his research offers an alternative perspective to apprehend the underlying impacts of the transition of China’s accounting practices on the political economies in which they operate. He has made strong contributions to this field of study as his work has been published in top ranking international journals, such as Accounting Auditing Accountability Journal and Critical Perspectives on Accounting. His knowledge of China has also enabled him to undertake an in-depth investigation of the country’s unique socio-political history and its implications on China’s accounting regulatory systems. The paper “Ideology diffusion and the role of accounting: A Gramscian approach to understanding China’s transition from 1949 to 1957” (co-authored with Dr Lina Xu and Dr Corinne Cortese) was bestowed the Accounting History 2014 Manuscript Award by the Accounting and Finance Association of Australia and New Zealand (AFAANZ) as it made “the most significant contribution to the accounting history literature” in that year.
