Personal profile

Research interests

I joined the Accounting, Finance & Law Division at School of Management as a Senior Lecturer in Finance in October 2017, having previously been a Lecturer in Finance at University of Essex and Aston University. My primary research field is in empirical corporate finance, especially related to dividend policy, corporate liquidity management and capital structure. Current research focuses on (1) how firms manage their liquid assets and how the real effects of financial markets influence corporate decision making and (2) alternative finance for SMEs and entrepreneurs. My work has been published in several international journals, such as Journal of Corporate Finance. I have been an ad-hoc reviewer for several internationally well-established journals and conferences, such as Journal of Corporate Finance, British Accounting Review, International Review of Financial Analysis, International Journal of Banking, Accounting and Finance, Financial Management Association Annual Meeting, Financial Management Association European Conference, and INFINITI.

Willing to supervise PhD

I welcome enquiries from prospective PhD students and am happy to take a look at proposals that fit with my research interests.
