Biography

Rita Samiolo is a Senior Lecturer in Accounting and Financial Management and deputy director of the FinWork Futures research centre at King's Business School. She holds a PhD in Accounting from the London School of Economics and Political Science.

Rita’s research is in the area of social and institutional studies of accounting. She has a broad interest in the changing roles and rationales of accounting in different governance settings – the pitfalls and possibilities of governing by numbers. She is particularly interested in examining economic calculation from the perspective of the history and sociology of science, unpacking the epistemic assumptions underlying costing and performance measurement approaches. She has worked on empirical topics such as the appraisal of large public sector projects and the rise of rankings in transnational governance.

She is member of the Editorial Board of Accounting, Organization and Society.
