My life could be dichotomised into two phases – before 2008 and after 2008.
2008, this was the year after which I started my study in professional accounting in Australia. I had been an assistant engineer for two years, from 2005 to 2007, in a private enterprise after graduating from Shanghai University.
Since 2008, I have been in Australia for almost ten years. I completed my Masters degree in professional accounting with a GPA of 6.45 out of 7, and an academic excellence award, in 2009 and was granted the direct entry into an Honours programme. I took a gap year before entering the Honours programme and worked as a business analyst and an accountant in a multi-national construction supply company. In 2011, I completed the Honours programme with a first-class grade and was offered a full-scholarship for my PhD study.
I started my teaching during my PhD study and gained one-year teaching experience in Griffith University as a tutor. My teaching style promotes intensive in-class interactions and follows a student-centred learning approach. Although accounting principles are rule-based, I endorse a flexible way of learning and encourage students to develop their own understanding based on real-life experiences. After finishing my PhD degree in 2017, I am honounred to become a member of the SII teaching team.
