Finia KUHLMANN

Assistant Professor

Accounting and Management Control

 Profile picture

Biography

Finia Kuhlmann received her PhD in Accounting from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and her postgraduate Master in Women’s Studies at the University of Oxford. She is a Fellow of the UK Higher Education Academy and an alumna of the German Academic Scholarship Foundation (Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes). Outside academia, Finia is engaged in the charitable sector and serves as a trustee of an education charity and of an organisation that fosters exchange between business and charity leaders.

Her research primarily focuses on performance measurement and management control practices as they play out in the daily life of organisations. In her work, Finia examines the assumptions and conditionalities of accounting with particular regard to the construction of representations. As part of her doctoral research, she conducted a two-year-long organisational ethnography in settings of extreme vulnerability (e.g., modern slavery, domestic abuse, homelessness) to study the practices of monitoring and reporting with which organisations account for care services for vulnerable people. Finia is more broadly interested in the extension of accounting into new spaces and in ‘measuring the unmeasurable’
