I received a PhD in Management with Finance from the University of Paris-Dauphine (France) in 2008. I've then worked for 4 years as a Lecturer at the University of Bath, and then 1 year as Assistant Professor at Richmond, The American International University in London. I joined Westminster University as a Senior Lecturer in Finance in January 2015.

I've been teaching various undergraduate and postgraduate modules in Finance including International Finance, Investment Banking, Corporate Finance, Banking Risk, and Investments, as well as Research Methods for Finance.

My research interests spread across finance (empirical asset pricing, behavioural finance), economics (macroeconomics, religion) and international business (cross-border mergers and acquisitions). I have recently published in European Journal of Finance, International Business Review, International Journal of the Economics of Business, and European Journal of Political Economy.
