Lisa Ricci

PhD Student, Doctor of Philosophy Program - Accounting


Curriculum Vitae: View


Lisa joins the Beedie School of Business as a qualified Chartered Accountant with a strong background in ESG, financial reporting and corporate advisory. She has also served on several non-profit boards and volunteer as a mentor in the CPA Canada Professional Education Program.

Having explored controllership, entrepreneurship, and professional services, she has experience in various areas ranging from financial statement audit to systems and control implementations to due diligence processes to finance team hiring and development.

As a Ph.D. student, Lisa hopes to complement her decade of experience teaching at post-secondary institutions and the foundational research skills earned during her Master's degree by exploring research that combines qualitative and experimental designs to explore the evolving ESG reporting landscape, specifically as it pertains to Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises. She is interested in the potential impact of mindfulness interventions on attention and how this links to information processing (you might know this as System 1 & System 2 from Daniel Kahneman’s book “Thinking Fast and Slow” or Richard Thaler’s “Nudge.”)

Lisa is always eager to connect with like-minded folks in the ESG/SME/Psychology space, so please email her and/or connect on LinkedIn if you’re interested in chatting.
