Audrey has a PhD (completed part time in April 2011), Masters in Social Science Research and a Bachelor’s with Honours in Business all from the University of Edinburgh and a Postgraduate Teaching qualification from Heriot-Watt University.

Audrey is currently involved in several research networks which include the Institute of Public Sector Accounting Research (IPSAR), and the Academy for Accounting Historians. She is also the founder of the Accounting for Society and the Environment (ASE) and the Healthcare Accounting and Management (HAM) research networks.

Audrey's primary research interests lie in the public sector (particularly healthcare) accounting predominantly from a contemporary perspective, although she has secondary interest in accounting history, and gender in the accounting profession and has top ranked publications in each area. Her research takes an interdisciplinary perspective and is mainly concerned with the social impact of accounting, public policy and management control.
