I am a Reader in Economics and Finance and joined the University of Portsmouth in 2014. I have 15 years of experience from the foreign exchange and interest rate derivatives markets, having been a trader at HSBC, Citi, Crédit Agricole and Merrill Lynch. In 2009, I returned to academia to do research on the LIBOR and completed my doctoral thesis with the title ‘Determining the LIBOR: A Study of Power and Deception’ in 2013. I have also held research and teaching positions at SOAS University of London, University of Leeds, Meiji University (Tokyo), Olin Business School (Washington University in St. Louis) and Peking University HSBC Business School. My research has been published in journals such as the Journal of International Financial Markets, Institutions & Money, Economics Letters and the Review of Political Economy. I am also the author of ‘Barometer of Fear: An Insider’s Account of Rogue Trading and the Greatest Banking Scandal in History’ (Zed Books, 2017) and co-editor of 'Unconventional Monetary Policy and Financial Stability: The Case of Japan (Routledge, 2020).
