I joined Portsmouth Business School as a Senior Lecturer in January 2016. Prior to this appointment, I obtained my MSc and PhD at the University of Bath before joining the University of Sussex as a teaching staff. In 2015 I re-joined Bath as a Research Associate and worked on an ESRC-funded project in relation to public sector audit.

Teaching Responsibilities

My teaching focus is on financial accounting.


My current research focus is in the area of auditing, financial reporting and corporate governance. I have been working on these issues in the past few years in the context of public sector and not-for-profits, including NHS, local authorities and public universities.
