I am a Senior Lecturer in Finance at the Sheffield Business School. After completing my PhD at the University of East Anglia and my postdoctoral post at the University of Cambridge I joined Sheffield Hallam University in September 2021. My PhD focused on textual analytics of high-frequency news, and its various impact on asset prices, volatility and trading activity in stock markets. My main primary research interests are in Asset Pricing, Behavioural Finance and Climate Finance. My research has also been covered in major international news outlets including Bloomberg, Reuters and The Guardian. My teaching interests are in financial derivatives, econometrics and risk. My primary focus is on developing teaching material for applied econometrics. I am also a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
