Before joining the Department of Accountancy and Governance at BCU, Sunny worked as a full-time Lecturer in Accounting and Finance at the University of Sunderland. During her PhD at the University of Bradford, she has been a Teaching Assistant in various accounting modules. Her PhD thesis investigates non-financial information (i.e., intellectual capital disclosure) in relation to corporate governance (concerning the role of boards of directors), earning quality, audit fees and analysts’ forecasts. Also, she has ever worked for a multinational electronics company in credit and risk management.
Her research interests include accounting for intellectual capital (from both financial reporting and management accounting perspectives), voluntary disclosure, corporate governance, earning quality, audit fees and capital market-based accounting research.
Sunny has presented her research works at national and international conferences, especially for those regularly organised by EAA (European Accounting Association) and BAFA (British Accounting and Finance Association).
