Professional biography

Matthew joins The Open University Business School after previous academic posts in the UK, Denmark, France, the Netherlands and Australia. He gained his PhD from Macquarie University (Australia) for research on the notion of social responsibility in financial services.

Research interests

Broadly, my research looks at the cultural aspects of globalisation. My early publications researched the ideologies furthered by so-called socially responsible financial products, while my post-doctoral work identified the largely symbolic treatment of transnational environmental management agreements. My current research interests are the pyschology of workers in global financial centres; the ways that heritage museums represent the postcolonial experience; and the organization of arts development.

Teaching interests

Corporate financial reporting, Auditing, Management accounting, Research methods.
 

Impact and engagement

Founding editor of the Journal of Sustainable Finance & Investment (Routledge).
Member, Climate Disclosure Standards Board.
