Accounting and reporting choices made by small and medium size entities and the application of accounting and reporting approaches in understanding corporate social investment and sustainability are examples of current projects.
Brad has published articles in several international research journals including:

Brad has also presented research papers at several international conferences and has been recently appointed as an editorial board member of the journals AAAJ, AH and Sustainability Accounting, Management and Policy Journal and acted as ad hoc reviewer for several research journals, including AAAJ, Abacus, Accounting and Finance, Accounting Business and Financial History, AH, Issues in Accounting Education.

In addition, a key focus of his efforts has been to build research capacity across different disciplines and involving industry partners. In this area, Brad has successfully managed and coordinated different research projects involving a range of industry partners, including the Australian Accounting Standards Board, National Water Commission, CPA Australia, the Institute of Chartered Accountants, Australia, Royal Botanic Gardens and the Institute of Public Accountants (IPA). These projects have attracted over $800,000 in funding from the Australia Research Council and from the National Water Commission (NWC) and have resulted in the development of major research reports and a range of publications in research journals and in the professional journals of the professional accounting bodies. A number of additional research initiatives emanating from this work are currently in progress.

His diverse teaching experience encompasses accounting at all undergraduate levels as well as at postgraduate level and executive education, both in Australia and overseas.
