Dr Zhiyuan Simon Tan joined the then Department of Management at King’s College London as a Lecturer in Accounting in September 2010.

His research covers two areas.

First, he is interested in the work conducted by sell-side financial analysts. Particularly, he examines the use of accounting and non-accounting information by analysts, their work products (e.g. written reports), and their professional expertise.

Second, he is interested in accounting change in organisations and society, particularly within the Chinese context.

Dr. Zhiyuan has published in Accounting, Organizations and Society, some book chapters, and a research report for the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants. He has acted as an ad hoc reviewer for academic journals, conferences, and a professional accountancy body.

He is now on the editorial board of Qualitative Research in Accounting and Management.
