About Xinyi

I joined UNH in Fall 2010. Prior to my time at UNH, I taught part-time at the University of Texas at Dallas for two semesters and taught full-time at a college in China for four years. I also have three years’ public accounting experience gained in China.

I am fascinating about accounting because of its key role in the business world-providing information to help interested parties such as managers, investors, creditors, regulators to make sound decisions. Being an accountant does not mean working a dull job and crunching numbers all day! My goal is to help students understand accounting’s role in the business world. For students choosing accounting as a profession, my goal is to help them gain the requisite knowledge and skills critical for their success in the field. While teaching is my top priority, I keep active in research. I have published several scholarly journal articles and have presented my research at national and international conferences. I find UNH is an ideal place for me, because it calls on me to be both a dedicated teacher and a productive researcher.
