Personal profile


I have held various teaching roles (since 2003) at different Universities both in the U.K. and abroad before joining Coventry University in February 2015. As a qualified chartered accountant, I have successfully prepared students for professional qualifications. I am passionate about understanding dynamic relationships between key players in the energy markets and how such relationships could influence energy price formation and development of international accounting standards particularly for extractive industries. Other research areas include environmental accounting (including climate change), resource accountability, corruption in emerging economies and reputational management. I am also responsible for module leading School’s postgraduate and undergraduate dissertations/research methods (M45EFA/M99EFA/M25EFA/M21EFA and 385ACC). In addition to the PhD supervision experience, I have chaired nearly 10 PhD and MPhil Vivas.


I have published in Petroleum Accounting and Financial Management journal, Journal of Accounting in Emerging Economies and I am currently working towards publishing other research outputs in highly reputable academic journals. I am also in collaboration with academics within and outside Coventry University on projects that have attracted funding.

  • Financial reporting
  • Research methods
