"My CIMA appointment will be an excellent opportunity for the exchange of ideas and I expect it to advance my research. Cardiff University is an especially appropriate venue for the academic portion of this appointment as senior faculty members are working in the area of interorganizational management accounting.”
 
Dr.Anderson is currently a professorial fellow at the University of Melbourne. Her research focused on the design and implementation of performance measurement and cost control systems and spans the fields of management accounting and operations research has been published in top academic journals.
 
The lectures will focus on how firms are managing strategic alliances and supply chain partnerships drawn from Dr. Anderson’s recently published July and September 2009 series in the American Accounting Association journal, Accounting Horizons. She will present evidence on how management accounting data and control systems have been adapted to the environment of alliances and partnerships drawing on prior published work as well as two ongoing research projects.
 
She serves as an editor of The Accounting Review and on the editorial boards of the Accounting Organizations and Society, Production and Operations Management, and Management Accounting Research. She has served on numerous committees for the American Accounting Association and the Management Accounting Section of the American Accounting Association.
