Lecturer

Overview


Farzana grew up in Bangladesh and moved to Wellington, New Zealand in 2006. She completed her Bachelors in Commerce ─ Accounting (Honours) and Finance in 2009 and later her PhD in 2015 from Victoria University of Wellington (VUW). With personal interest in the growth and socio-political issues in her home country, Farzana’s PhD research focused on Bangladesh where there is widespread poverty and few education opportunities, particularly for poorer echelons of society. It explored the potentials of alternative, multidimensional dialogic accounting and accountability practices in empowering poor class women in the microfinance-NGO context. During her PhD, Farzana was working full-time as an Assistant Lecturer and later Lecturer at VUW. Her teaching areas include management accounting, financial accounting and the study of accounting in a social and political context at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Farzana joined University of Wollongong (UOW) as a Lecturer in January 2017 and is looking forward to exploring her academic aspirations within the Australian context.
