Dr Wei Li

Faculty of Arts, Business, Law and Economics

Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD - email supervisor to discuss availability.


I graduated from the University of Melbourne with Ph.D. in Accounting in 2018.

My research area is in financial accounting. Specifically, I am interested in how capital market participants, such as investors, analysts, creditors and managers intereact and hence affect firms' information envrionment. I also serve as an Ad hoc reviewer for The Accounting Review, Management Science, Journal of Corporate Finance and European Accounting Review.

As an Higher Degree Research (HDR) coordinator in the Business School, I am responsible for supporting the Head of the Business School by closely collaborating with the HDR cohort, supervisors, the Associate Dean of Graduate Studies, and the Adelaide Graduate Research School. My role involves facilitating the recruitment, retention, and timely completion of HDR students and managing milestones and records.
