Me in Brief
Kobboon Chotruangprasert is a doctoral student in Accounting at the Schulich School of Business at York University in Toronto, Canada. She holds a B.Sc. in Business Administration with accounting major from Thammasat University in Thailand. She also received her MBA jointly from Chulalongkorn University in Thailand and York University in Canada.
Prior to doctoral work, Kobboon worked in Thailand full-time for Ernst & Young as an auditor and part-time for Yamaha Thailand Music School as a piano teacher. She also worked in Canada as a Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) Analyst for Innovest Strategic Value Advisors (now part of MSCI), where she analyzed, graded and reported companies' performance on environmental, social and governance issues, catering to clients such as institutional investors and pension funds. Kobboon also has teaching experiences both as an accounting course instructor and an accounting lab instructor at the Schulich School of Business during her PhD program.
Kobboon's research interests include voluntary social and environmental disclosure, Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Guidelines, and ethics within the mining industry. Her PhD dissertation aims to study mining companies' GRI adoption decisions in order to understand the role and effectiveness of the GRI Guidelines as a tool for the mining companies to communicate their ethical responsibilities to stakeholders.
