I currently work as lecturer of law at Kingston Business School and I am the Deputy Course Director for the MBA. I have worked at Kingston for the last 6 years. However, my history at Kingston dates back much earlier when I enrolled as LLM student in 2005, taking over some part-time teaching from 2009. In 2011, Kingston University offered me a scholarship to do my PhD, which I successfully finished on a thesis concerning insolvency law by 2015. Before starting my career as university lecturer, I worked as a qualified Lawyer in Germany, practising insolvency law as well as working as special risk manager for an international credit insurance company. I am a qualified English Solicitor since 2011 and successfully completed an MSc in Taxation in Oxford in 2020. I am the module leader for Law for Accountants and Theory and Practice of Taxation. I have a research interests in insolvency and tax law.
