Orthodoxia Kyriacou is currently an Associate Professor in Transdisciplinary (DProf) Developments at Middlesex University, London. She has been an academic for over 25 years having previously spent 22 years teaching accounting. Her research interests are eclectic and she has published in the areas of accounting education, gender, ethnicity in accounting, UK accounting profession, oral history and experiences, media representations of accounting  and climate change and sustainability. Since joining the DProf (Transdisciplinary Practice) team at Middlesex University, her research interests focus on interconnecting sectors and disciplines to reimagine accounting and its multiple futures. While she is fascinated by the theory of accounting, her passion is in the threads that link financial accounting to social issues and to make those threads stronger in the eyes of the academy, the public and policy makers. She is now involved with creating stronger links between multi sector professionals and the academy.
