Areas of interest

My current areas of interest are finding innovative ways to promote an inclusive learning environment and enhance student experience.  My research interest focuses on time-series econometrics in areas of Economic Growth, Foreign Direct Investments, Poverty, Energy, Financial Inclusion and Trade.


I have over 10 years’ experience in academia working in different capacities. I was an associate course director, lecturer, and course module leader during my tenure at Coventry University.  I have taught and convened modules on the International Foundation Year and Pre-Masters programme at Surrey University, ISC.  My work has included module design, reviewing, and evaluating undergraduate and foundation programme. Prior to joining Reading University, I was an econometrics specialist and have also worked with councils on socio-economic assessment projects.
