Personal profile


I am a senior lecturer (associate professor) in Economics and Finance at the University of Portsmouth in the UK, with a focus on (i) fintech, (ii) digital currency, (iii) digital economy, (iv) monetary policy and (v) financial future.

Please visit my personal webpage for more information. 


I have a PhD in Economics from Durham University and a MLitt in Finance from the University of St Andrews. During my PhD, I investigated the role of money in monetary policy and how money supply and seigniorage impact on output growth using a DSGE model and Hansen’s panel threshold (Non-linear) methodology.

Currently, I have been selected to contribute to a joint policy brief titled “The Global South Growing out of Poverty, Inequality, and Exclusiveness - What the G7 Needs to Do” for the  G7 (Group of Seven) Summit in Japan in 19 -21 May. I wrote about financial empowerment and innovative access to finance for Think7 (T7), the G7 official think tank engagement group. The T7 group promotes research-based solutions to unfolding global challenges during Japan’s 2023 G7 presidency and beyond. 

Recently, I have secured Bank for International Settlements (BIS) research fellowship. I will be invited to the BIS's Monetary and Economic Department to conduct joint research for short periods in their headquarter, Basel Switzerland in 2023.

I am a local chair of the 54th Annual Conference of the Money, Macro and Finance Society, 6-8 September 2023. The MMF Society traces its roots back to Harry Johnson and the Money Study Group that was formed in 1969 at the LSE. You can find more information on their website

I was a visiting fellow at Asian Development Bank and the University of Tokyo in 2019. I worked on fintech and financial inclusion in developing countries. The objective of the research project was to analyse fintech in developing countries and evaluate the extent to which they can help to improve financial inclusion.

I was appointed as the Departmental Director for PhD in Economics and Finance  in 2017 and served a role until January 2023. I had general responsibility for research degrees students and supervisors such as recruitment and admissions of PGRS within departments including monitoring enquiries, passing enquiries and applications to supervisors.

In 2014, I joined the VOLCROWE (Volunteer and Crowdsourcing Economics) research project. This was a £750,000 three-year EPSRC funded project which involved collaboration between the University of Portsmouth, University of Oxford, University of Manchester and University of Leeds.
