Her academic career has spanned more than two decades and includes appointments at Monash University and Avondale University. Her research interests centre on the professional accountant: the competencies and qualities they need and their work environment. Lyn was chosen as the AFAANZ doctoral student to attend the European Accounting Doctoral Symposium in France in 2013. Lyn’s doctoral thesis focused on accountants’ communication in the not-for-profit sector and her thesis won the University of South Australia’s Business School Best Thesis Award in 2014. Lyn has led two AFAANZ grants. She is an experienced qualitative researcher. Lyn’s interest in enhancing accounting students’ employability has included research in fostering communication skills and employers’ perceptions of the ICT skills required of accounting graduates.
