Senior Lecturer Accounting
Before joining the Accounting Group at Cass in 2010, Andrew served on the accounting faculty of Tilburg University in the Netherlands and several universities in Hong Kong. He has broad interests in research related to profitability forecasting, firm valuation, segment reporting, corporate diversification, internal capital market, capital budgeting, fraud, and auditing.
Andrew has published and forthcoming articles in Management Science, Review of Accounting Studies, Contemporary Accounting Research, Decision Sciences, and Journal of Economic Psychology. He served as an editorial board member of Auditing: A Journal of Practice & Theory, an official journal of the Auditing Section of American Accounting Association. He has been invited by schools around the world to present his work in their research seminars. The schools include (UK) Cambridge Judge Business School, London School of Economics and Political Science, Lancaster University Management School; (Germany) Mannheim Business School; (Austria) Vienna Graduate School of Finance; (Norway) Norwegian School of Economics and Business Administration; (Canada) The University of Alberta School of Business; (US) North Carolina State University; (Australia) The University of Technology, Sydney; (China) Tsinghua University School of Economics and Management, Fudan University School of Management.
Andrew does both theoretical modeling and empirical archival research. He uses economics-based research methodologies. This is not restricted to the orthodox “rational man” paradigm. He looks forward to incorporating in his future analytical research the latest development of (rigorously theorized) unorthodox approaches, such as regret minimization and reference-dependent utility models.
Andrew's recent teaching focus is on company valuation and financial statement analysis. He has also taught courses in management accounting for years at various levels, as well as in advanced financial accounting (IFRS), auditing, game theory, and economics.
