I joined Kingston Business School in 2015 and lecture on a range of Accounting and Finance modules on the postgraduate programmes and specialize in delivering workshops and seminars aimed at leveraging the power of Bloomberg software for advanced financial analysis. I am the Course Director for Bachelor's in Business Administration (BBA) programme, and Liaison Officer for our collaborative partner institutions: NMIMS-CIS (India).

My principal research interests are in the areas of credit risk modelling, corporate reporting, voluntary disclosure practices including ESG.
