Dr Di Wang

Lecturer in Accounting


Di Wang works at Lancaster University Management School as Lecturer in Accounting from Spring 2019. Prior to that, he obtained the doctorate (2019) from the University of Bristol and a Master’s degree (2014) from the Australian National University. On teaching, he co-developed the module AC.F338 – “Accounting for Business Resilience” and is also involved in teaching seminars of other financial and management accounting modules.

Di's research interests generally include corporate sustainability reporting, transparency, accountability, and qualitative research methodology. Currently, he is working on several papers to explore issues including greenwashing versus brownwashing and decoupling versus inverse/reverse decoupling; the concepts of materiality as boundary objects; Anthropocene, accounting, and tele-coupling; and writing method sections in qualitative accounting research. One of these papers is being revised for resubmission at a FT50 Journal.

In addition, he co-founded the Qualitative Day Workshop series, which was held for the first time in December 2019 in Lancaster. The workshop attracted approximately 40 participants including lecturers and PhD students from high-quality universities across the UK.
