Personal profile

Personal information

I am professor of Financial Accounting at the School of Business and Economics at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. This is also the university where I did my PhD (1996).  Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam is a university with a strong track record in accounting, both in terms of academic research and relations with practice. It has been an excellent vantage point for me to stay engaged with the many developments in the world of corporate reporting in recent decades, in the Netherlands and internationally.  It has been and still is a privilege to be a member of the SBE School of Accounting.


Most of my research is concerned with the development of financial reporting by listed companies from the mid-nineteenth century to the present. Specific themes and current projects include:

  • Accounting standard setting, in particular by the IASC and the IASB, and the relationship between IFRS and local regulatory frameworks
  • Financial reporting and company law
  • Voluntary disclosure
  • Theodore Limperg (1879-1961), leading Dutch auditor and theoretician of business economics
  • The auditing profession in the Netherlands and Europe
