I am a Lecturer in Finance in Coventry University and ASPiRE fellow in the Centre for Financial and Corporate Integrity (CFCI). I hold a PhD in Accounting and Finance from the University of Glasgow. I further hold an MSc in Applied Accounting and Auditing and a BSc in Accounting.
I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) and external examiner in several academic institutions. I further serve as ad-hoc reviewer in international recognised academic journals.
I have previously held positions in the University of Glasgow and the University of Strathclyde. I have taught various courses in Accounting and Finance at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. In addition, I have worked as a financial accountant before joining the academia.
My main research interests lie in the areas of accounting and corporate finance. Specifically, I am interested in financial regulations, financial performance, insider trading, market-based accounting, and M&As.
My research has been funded from several funding bodies such as the Economics and Social Research Council (ESRC), the Committee for Departments of Accounting and Finance (CDAF) and the Ramón Areces Foundation. Furthermore, my research has been featured on the programs of national and international conferences such as the Financial Management Association (FMA), the Illinois International Journal of Accounting Symposium (TIJA), the British Accounting and Finance Association (BAFA) and the Financial Reporting and Business Communication (FRBC).
