I am an Associate Lecturer in Accounting and Finance in the School of Business at LSBU and also the course director for Accounting and Finance at the LSBU Croydon campus. I joined LSBU as a PhD student in 2018, before which I obtained MSc degree in banking and finance from Queen Mary University of London and BA Honours degree in accounting and finance from Manchester Metropolitan University. I also worked and undertook a number of accounting finance responsibilities in UK-based telecommunication companies.

My research interest mainly lies in empirical finance and quantitative finance, with a focus on the study of global economic policy uncertainty, and stock and cryptocurrency markets using the copula model.
