Expertise

My major research interests are in the area of sustainability, corporate social reporting and the environment.  Ethics becomes an associated area of research.  The majority of my publications and presentations have been in these areas.  My interests extend both to the financial and management accounting perspectives, implications for ethical behaviour, format of reporting and motivations for reporting, more recently I have taken an interest in integrated reporting and B-Corps.

Other areas of interest include risk management, data mining and associated information system issues, small business, NFPs, NCOs and education in particular blended/flexible approaches to teaching and learning and change at the higher education level.Currently I supervise 9 students at doctoral level and 1 honours student in these areas embracing impression management, philosophical underpinnings of corporate environmental reporting, professional (audit) scepticism, stakeholder engagement, waste management and local government authorities, issue of organisational legitimacy linked to case studies, integrated and embedding of corporate social responsibility and corporate governance, and in business education focused on teaching methods and AACSB adoption in business schools. Equally I have supervised 10 research higher degrees to completion (9 doctorates, 1 masters), and 6 honours students in areas of corporate social responsibility, sustainability and local government, self-generating and re-generating assets, data mining technology, IS/IT security governance, small business, performance management, risk management and internal control, and philanthropy.  A number of these have been case study.

Research Themes

Trevor has published broadly in the area of Environment, Resources and Sustainability.  Both his Doctoral and Masters Theses were in the area of environment with a focus on stakeholder theory and disclosure practices in the former and motivation to report environmental information in the latter.  Published work in this area and the related area of environmental management accounting as have conference and professional presentations been. Doctoral and Masters supervision has also been in this general area including candidates who have work in the area of public sector and sustainability, self-generating and non-generating assets and links in environmental reporting to philosophical propositions by way of example.

Other research activity has been undertaken in the area Creativity, Culture and Society in various published works embracing small business, corporate governance and in education – in particular flexible/blended approaches.  Supervision in the area of philanthropy has also been completed.  I continue to supervise in this area with candidates for doctorates in the area of NGO's and local government.

Work has also been undertaken in the field of Data, Knowledge and Decisions. Trevor has publications in the field of data mining and data security, and have supervised candidates at doctoral level in these areas.
