I am an Associate Professor in Accounting & Finance at Surrey Business School, University of Surrey and Deputy Director of the Gulf One Lab for Computational and Economic Research (GOLCER) center. 

My research work primarily focuses on empirical banking, where I investigate the financial, accounting, and corporate governance differences among alternative/ethical bank types (e.g., community, Islamic, green banks). A significant portion of this research is dedicated to examining efficiency, productivity, liquidity creation, financial stability modeling and forecasting, as well as audit practices. I am also actively involved in researching financial economics and financial econometrics issues, including, but not limited to, price clustering, stock price manipulation, realized volatility modeling, and forecasting. 

My work has appeared in journals such as the Journal of Financial Services Research, Quantitative Finance, the Journal of International Financial Markets, Institutions and Money, the Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization, the International Review of Financial Analysis and the Annals of Tourism Research.
