In my role, I take on seminar and module leadership responsibilities for both undergraduate and postgraduate courses. Beyond this, my duties encompass academic advising, placement tutoring, and supervising dissertations for students at both levels. Additionally, I'm involved in a 'Student Experience' project, an initiative aimed at harnessing learning analytics to help students gain insights into their learning patterns. This, in turn, is expected to boost student progression, achievement, and overall success.

Currently, I am supervising one PhD student in the area of Corporate Governance. I am eager to collaborate with students who are passionate about corporate governance research, particularly those leaning toward qualitative or mixed research methodologies.


My research focuses on Corporate Governance, more specifically on institutional investors' engagement in their investee corporate. This is an area that I specialized in during my PhD studies. Currently, I am working on a research project which explores the effectiveness of the Stewardship Code for asset managers in the UK.
