I am the Associate Head of Students, for the School of Accounting, Economics and Finance. Following my appointment as a full-time Lecturer at the University of Portsmouth in 2018, I became a Senior Lecturer for the Accounting and Financial Management subject group in 2019. Prior to this, I undertook a PhD bursary at the University of Portsmouth, for my thesis entitled: ‘Identifying signs of corporate distress and deception through language: Evidence from the UK’. I graduated from Oxford Brookes University in 2013, following the completion of my BSc (Hons) degree in Accounting and Finance, before completing my MSc Forensic Accounting degree at the University of Portsmouth in 2014. My main research interests relate to the areas of Forensic Accounting, Counter Fraud, Linguistic Analysis, Deception Detection, Emotion and Motivation, Digital Learning and Sustainability.
