Coventry University


As a Lecturer in Finance, my teaching specialism includes the delivery of corporate finance at postgraduate level as well as financial regulation, investment and risks and wealth management at undergraduate level. I work closely with professional bodies such as the Institute of Financial Services (IFS) and the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment (CISI); I lead the delivery of the undergraduate modules that lead to certifications being awarded by these professional bodies.

I am also the Director of the Coventry Business School Trading Floor which is a state of the art facility designed to incorporate world leading financial news, research and analytical software into teaching and research at the Business School. In this capacity, I liaise with several leading financial institutions and lead the integration of the financial tools used by these organisations in teaching, learning and research within the Business School.

Research Interests

My current research interest covers the impacts of Central Bank communication on financial markets, including the transmission mechanisms through which financial markets are impacted. Previously, I had worked on the effects of financial liberalisation on investments in emerging markets.

I am also very interested in pedagogic research and recently obtained funding worth £3,000 to support my research in evaluating the intercultural perspectives in financial trading and investments using simulation based learning.
