I am senior lecturer in accounting at Portsmouth business school. Before joined in Portsmouth University, I did my Msc degree and PhD in Accounting in Lancaster University.

Teaching Responsibilities

I teach financial accounting and supervise final-year independent projects. I currently co-ordinate Essentials of Financial Accounting, the first year unit for accredited accounting pathways. I also supervise final-year dissertation students.



My research interests mainly lay in financial reporting, particularly earnings quality, audit quality and goodwill and intangibles.
