Research

Jing's main research interests include accounting for intellectual capital, from both the management accounting and corporate reporting's perspective, and particularly the intellectual capital reporting practices of firms and the determinants and effects of intellectual capital reporting, voluntary disclosure (including Corporate Social Responsibility), corporate governance, financial accounting and reporting, and effects of different IFRSs. Jing is also interested in accounting reporting quality and performance attributions.

Jing has also worked on a project relating to big data analysis, and is interested in the application of big data analytic and artificial intelligence in accounting and finance. Jing is also interested in areas of work that relate to the development of financial literacy in different stakeholder groups.
