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.
