I am Senior Lecturer in Corporate Finance at the University of Liverpool, where I began working as Lecturer in October 2011. Prior to that I was working as Teaching Fellow in Finance at Durham University Business School, from where I also obtained my PhD in 2007. My research areas include Behavioural Finance, Emerging Markets, Institutional Investors and Volatility. I have published to date in several international peer-reviewed academic journals, including European Financial Management, International Review of Financial Analysis and Journal of International Financial Markets, Institutions and Money, with a further publication being forthcoming at the Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization. I have also contributed to edited works and professional publications by key publishers (Elsevier; Wiley) and institutions (the National Stock Exchange of India), with my network of collaborations including people from several universities (Durham University Business School; Leeds University Business School; Newcastle University Business School; University of Bath School of Management; University of Glasgow; University of Hull; University of Stirling; Catholic University of Portugal; University of Zaragoza). I have acted as referee to several acclaimed, peer-refereed journals (e.g. Journal of Banking and Finance, Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization, Journal of Business Research, Journal of International Money and Finance, Journal of International Financial Markets, Institutions and Money, European Journal of Finance, Journal of Forecasting) and I am currently a member of the editorial board of four journals. I have also received a research grant from the National Stock Exchange of India for a project completed in 2008. I have successfully supervised four doctoral students to completion and I am currently supervising another four doctoral students.
