Current teaching responsibilities comprise finance and accounting modules, including modules in fund accounting, for the B. A. in Accounting, the Executive MBA, MBS and M. Sc. in GFIS as well as research supervision for the Doctorate in Business Administration. A chartered accountant by profession, I have maintained my network with practice through my involvement in the oversight of the professional accounting examinations. I have a solid research & publication background having written textbooks in investment fund accounting and financial reporting and I have a strong interest in public engagement.
