Director of Centre for Financial Research, Anglia Ruskin University

My principal research interests lie in the fields of Behavioural Finance, Mergers and Acquisitions, International Finance and Financial Economics, especially financial crisis, herd behaviour, asset pricing, financial derivatives and dynamic stochastic general equilibrium models. I have previously investigated the impact of corporate reforms and financial crises on the financial performance and risk-taking behaviour of firms listed on the transatlantic capital markets.

Through my research and teaching experience, I have gained proficiency to augment and integrate various applications of finance from an academic and commercial standpoint. I have a particular expertise and interest in financial market regulations from a risk-taking perspective.
