I am an Associate Professor in Accounting and Co-Lead of the Accounting, Accountability and Ethics Research Group at the University of Derby, UK. I have previously worked across three UK HEIs in various capacities, including Lecturer in Accountancy, Senior Lecturer in Accounting and Associate Professor in Accounting. Before moving to academia, I worked in different accounting roles in the private sector. I am a Fellow of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (FCCA) and a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (SFHEA), with extensive experience in teaching in higher education. I also have experience in developing and reviewing undergraduate/postgraduate programmes for successful accreditation or re-accreditation by professional accountancy bodies. I have served as an elected Academic Council member of the Robert Gordon University.

My research expertise and interests are in the area of accounting and corporate governance with a particular focus on corporate governance and financial reporting, the intersection of auditor characteristics and audit outcomes, accounting in the extractive industries, and market-based research. I have published widely in leading peer-reviewed international journals such as Journal of Business Ethics, Review of Quantitative Finance and Accounting, Journal of International Accounting, Auditing and Taxation, International Journal of Finance and Economics, Technological Forecasting and Social Change, among others. I have supervised four PhD candidates to completion and examined multiple theses (PhD) both nationally and internationally. I will also consider research proposals that are aligned with his research expertise and interests from prospective PhD candidates.

In the larger academic community, I serve as a Section Editor of Journal of Applied Accounting Research and Editorial Board Member of Journal of Governance and Regulation. I have also served as an Ad-hoc Reviewer for a number of leading international journals.
