Peter Vuong is a Lecturer in the Department of Accounting in Deakin Business School. Peter graduated from Deakin University with a Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Science with majors in Finance (Honours, first class), and Accounting and Mathematical modelling. After his studies, he worked at the Commonwealth Bank as a Mortgage Officer before deciding corporate life was not for him and consequently returned to Deakin to teach.

Over the past 6-7 years, he has tutored and lectured first to third-year students across a range of units including accounting, economics, finance and mathematics.

Currently, Peter is completing his PhD over at Monash University in the Banking and Finance program. Peter's research interests include corporate finance, corporate governance, financial time series analysis, financial contagion and systemic risk. His current research project involves examining the cost of social responsibility.
