Personal profile



I am a Senior Lecturer in finance having transitioned to academia after more than 20 years in the banking and finance industry. I have worked for multinational blue chip investment banks including UBS and Credit Suisse, as well as spending 15 years working for both conventional and Islamic banks in three different Middle Eastern countries at senior management level.

My work has spanned front office roles in treasury and derivatives structuring, as well as middle office and control roles in risk management, risk analytics, and product control. My last position was at the Islamic Development Bank, which is a multilateral development bank working to better the lives of impoverished people all over the world, where I set up and headed a financial strategy and policy function.



I am a theorist with research interests in risk management, economic capital modelling, systemic risk, derivatives, agency theory, Islamic banking, Microfinance, and faith-based financial decision-making. Currently, I am particularly interested in developing the theoretical foundations for the optimal pricing and risk management of retail account structures used by Islamic banks. I am also collaborating on research concerning systemic risk and the pricing of credit risk.
