I am currently involved in developing ICT Financial Solutions for Financial Contagion (Derivatives Markets and Interbank Lending), Large Value Payment Systems and Electronic Stock Exchange Trading Platforms and teaching across many areas of financial economics including financial markets, international and quantitative finance.

I am also involved (with Sheri and Azeem Malik) in the development of the real time rebuild of the London Stock Exchange Electronic Order Book market which is used in the lab training for students and back testing of intraday strategies.
