Research and Teaching Interests
Professor Ling Chuís research interests
are primarily grounded in federal income tax law and its impact on decision-making
by businesses and individuals. While her research is primarily directed towards
tax policy analysis it also extends to international taxation, corporate tax
planning, estate planning and accounting education. Professor Chu has published
in refereed academic journals including the Canadian Tax Journal, Review of
Quantitative Finance and Accounting, European Accounting Review, Accounting
Perspectives, and Issues in Accounting Education.
In addition to her extensive research work, she has also focused on the development and the teaching of tax courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels. This has included Taxation III offered at the Accounting Graduate Diploma level, the new CPA-MBA tax course and the management tax planning at the Executive Masters in Technology Management Program. In 2008, Professor Chu was awarded The Glenn Carroll Teaching Fellowship from the Lazaridis School of Business & Economics highlighting teaching excellence.
Before moving to academia full-time, Professor Chu worked in tax consulting with Arthur Andersen LLP followed by Deloitte LLP in their Toronto offices. Her practice at both firms focused on corporate and international tax, including tax aspects of cross-border investments and transactions, financings, reorganizations and restructurings.
