    Personal Statement

    I joined the University of Liverpool Management School (ULMS) in 2011.

    My main research interest is on the decolonisation of finance, although I am also interested on the impact of finance (broadly defined) upon economic growth and development.

    I have published an edited book on “Development Finance: issues and challenges” (Palgrave) in September 2017.

    Other current research interests are monetary unions in developing countries with special reference to the CFA Franc Zone and Islamic Finance. Other topics are outward Foreign Direct Investment from emerging markets, in particular China, determinants and impact of accounting and financial disclosure in the context of emerging markets and FDI in the context of rural areas.

    I have the responsibility for teaching Issues in Development Finance, Ethics and Regulations in Finance, Skills in Finance and I am involved in the Project for Finance.

    I am the Director of Studies for the BSc Finance and BSc Finance with the year in Industry that will be replaced by the brand new programmes BSc Finance and Data Analytics and BSc Finance and Data Analytics with the year in Industry. I have previously acted as the ULMS co-lead for Recruitment, Admissions and Widening participation (RAWP) and the ULMS Senior Tutor. From 2011 until 2015 I was the Director of Studies for the BA Business Economics and BA Business Economics with the year in Industry.

    Although as I am on the teaching and scholarship (T&S) pathway I am not able to supervise PhD theses, I still would be very interested in getting contacted by people, from very different walks of life and disciplines, interested in de-colonisation.
