Dr. Bryer's research has focused mainly on the organizing and accounting practices of alternative organizations such as cooperatives and social movements in different cultural contexts.  She sees these organizations as potentially allowing us to draw wider insights about how practices can be developed to achieve broad social and environmental aims.   

Dr Bryer has published work in leading journals in the field including Accounting Organizations and Society, Critical Perspectives on Accounting, Accounting Auditing and Accountability Journal, and Organization Studies.  She also aims to have direct impact on practice through collaborative research projects with alternative organizations. 


Dr Bryer has a PhD in Social Anthropology from the University of Manchester, UK. Prior to joining Bristol, she was a Senior Lecturer at Royal Holloway, University of London.  She has worked as a consultant for public and third sector organisations in Europe and the USA.


Dr Bryer's teaching experience spans management and financial accounting, sustainability reporting and accountability, and strategy and organisation studies.  She has also designed and taught courses in research methods.
