Personal profile


My teaching philosophy is themed around humility, discipline and employability. 

My teaching approach uses experiential learning to providing the practical reality to each subject's theoretical underpinning.

I currently teach financial econometrics(FIN7028) and trading principles(FIN7030) to postgraduates.

I have also designed and delivered executive education courses on statistical forecasting and capital markets. 

I am also programme director of the masters in Quantitative Finance.
