LinkedIn Profile 


I am a qualified management accountant who specialises in teaching management accounting for undergraduates in their first and second years and also at Masters levels. As an International Champion for the School, I am very interested in internationalisation and the plight of the international student and also particularly enjoy my Link Tutor role with NTTU, a university in Vietnam.

I have written on sports finance in the past and enjoy the dynamic nature of sport on accounting and finance. I have also taught a blended module on finance and Cyber Security.
