Karen Hanson - 

Speaker: Tom Cuckston


Tom completed his undergraduate degree in Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge in 2003. He then worked in the accounting profession for six years, qualifying with the ACCA in 2007. He completed a Master of Research degree at the University of York in 2010 and then a PhD at Newcastle University in February 2014.  The title of his thesis was 'Financial Accounting Calculation in relation to Nature'.  He has been working as a lecturer in accounting at Birmingham Business School since July 2013.

Tom’s main teaching and research interests lie in financial accounting, and particularly in the relationships between accounting and nature. His research adopts an actor-network theory perspective, which treats markets as concrete material arrangements of calculative devices.
