I graduated from Bournemouth University in 2003 with a first class honours degree in Accounting & Finance and have subsequently qualified as a chartered accountant.

Prior to starting at BU in 2000, I was an equity analyst and arbitrageur at a major European investment bank.

My research interests lie within the field of equity arbitrage, particularly surrounding mergers and acquisitions.
