I am a lecturer in accounting at Keele Management School. I moved to Keele in 2014 after teaching at Durham University. I completed my PhD at Manchester University on the subject of “Dividend Displacement and Information Content Effects of Corporate Distributions in the UK” in 2012. My main research area concerns the relationship between corporate  distributions and market value in the UK.  I have presented working papers at both national and international conferences.

Research and scholarships

My research interests include market-based accounting research, corporate valuation models using accounting information, corporate distributions (dividend and share repurchases). I am currently involved in numerous projects and working papers relating to corporate distributions and hope to expand my research to include empirical studies of corporate distributions in the USA and Europe in the future.


I am currently teaching a wide variety of accounting based subjects at Keele Management School. I mainly teach management accounting courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. I also tutor undergraduate students.
