Currently, as a full-time PhD researcher at Cranfield University SoM, research is focused on ESG and corporate finance.

I have a strong background in the financial services industry, having worked as a wealth manager in a security firm and a relationship manager in business banking before pursuing my PhD. In previous roles, I offered a combination of services that included providing investment advice, conducting research and analysis, and developing personalized investment strategies for clients. I also acted as a broker to buy and sell stocks on behalf of clients, utilizing expertise in macroeconomics, investment markets, and personal finance to effectively manage their finances.I have intermediate skills in Python, which would allow me to effectively analyze and interpret large data.

Overall, I am eager to apply skills and experience to ESG literature and make a meaningful contribution to the field.

Current activities

My Ph.D. thesis aims to contribute to corporate finance and ESG literature by exploring links between Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) disclosure, cost of debt, and cost of capital.
