Biography

I was awarded my BComm degree at UCG (now NUI Galway). After completing the Diploma in Professional Accountancy (now the MAcc) in UCD I joined Ernst & Young. I qualified as a member of the Institue of Chartered Accountants in Ireland in 1993 and as a member of CIMA in 1994. At UCD I completed an MComm degree based on a dissertation about the revaluation of fixed assets. I have completed a PhD at the University of Lancaster which is one of only two top research rated institutions in the Accountancy field in the United Kingdom. I have also studied at the University of Rochester, one of the top Accounting Schools in the United States.

Research

Research Interests

My main research agenda concerns the relationship between stock market valuation and accounting numbers. I use statistical methods to investigate this relationship. I am particularly interested in the effect of non-financial information on stock returns. I am also interested in the valuation of loss-making firms. I use the Ohlson model (residual income model) to investigate these questions.
