Personal profile

Research interests

My main research interests lie in prediction of corporate financial distress, impact of prudential regulation, derivatives usage, earnings, and econometric methodology. I am General Secretary and an Executive Trustee of the British Accounting and Finance Association - the national, and increasingly international, learned society for his subject area. Formerly, I was Head of Department of Accounting at the University of Exeter Business School and Head of the Accounting/Finance subject group at Aberystwyth University.

I am a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, and, prior to my academic career, had twelve years’ experience in financial and professional services: with Ernst & Young; NatWest Group; and Accenture. I won the Henry Ford Scholar Award and an A T Kearney Prize for his MBA performance at Cranfield University / Carnegie Mellon University (USA).

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
