I am an Associate Professor of Accounting at Princess Sumaya University for Technology (Amman, Jordan), where I teach, conduct research and supervise student research projects on accounting-related topics. Earlier, I worked at Middle East University (Amman, Jordan) and the Hashemite University (Zarqa, Jordan) . I have a PhD in Accounting from the University of Manchester, England. Earlier, I obtained the degrees of Bachelor in Accounting, and MBA (accounting concentration area) from The University of Jordan. My teaching interests and main teaching experience are in the areas of auditing, forensic accounting, accounting theory, financial accounting, and financial statement analysis. However, I have so far taught 33 different courses in the undergraduate, master and PhD levels. My research interests are in the areas of auditing, forensic accounting, internal control, corporate governance and financial reporting. While I did research using several methods, I am particularly interested in using qualitative research in auditing and accounting. I published research in prestigious journals (including, for example, International Journal of Auditing; Asian Journal of Business and Accounting; Asian Review of Accounting; Research in Accounting in Emerging Economies; Australasian Accounting, Business and Finance Journal; Journal of Economics and Administrative Sciences; Corporate Ownership and Control - (six of them listed on Scopus, and six on Thomson Reuters Citation Indices), and presented research in many international refereed conferences in several countries worldwide. I reviewed manuscripts for several prestigious international research journals (including six Emerald journals), and I am currently on the editorial board of Journal of Financial Reporting and Accounting (published by Emerald). I also have professional training experience, having given training courses in Jordan, the UAE and Saudi Arabia. My other interests include chess (I am a FIDE-rated player, and Jordanian arbiter), reading, travel and sport.
