Dr Solmaz Rohani

Lecturer in Accounting


I joined Salford Business School on 1 August 2016 as Lecturer in Accounting. My experience in academia began in 2011 when I started teaching Management Accounting at Manchester Metropolitan University while I was also pursuing my doctoral research project in field of accounting at Warwick Business School. After being graduated from University of Warwick with PhD in 2016, I am focused on teaching and contributing to accounting literature by conducting research studies at Salford Business School.


Principles of Accounting

Management Accounting for Control

Financial and Management Information Systems

Research Interests

Contributing to our understanding of ‘what accounting is’ and ‘what accounting does’ (preferably through interdisciplinary studies) is the focal point of my research interest. With that research focus, my specialty areas are management accounting and critical accounting with special interest in accounting information system, practice theory, green accounting/strategizing/policy, corporate environmental disclosure and environmental information dissemination through qualitative-oriented investigations. My current work is an ethnographic study which adopts qualitative research methods and is theoretically informed by the analytical practice approach of Michel Foucault.
