I joined the University of Leicester in January 2020 as a lecturer in Finance. Prior to my journey at Leicester, I had worked as a graduate teaching assistant at the University of Essex (October 2015 to June 2019). I gained my PhD degree in Finance (2019) and an MSc degree in Finance and Management at the University of Essex. I also have an MSc degree in Finance from Hult International Business School (London). I have a BSc degree in Business Administration from University of Benin (2009). During my time at Essex, I attained a fellow status in Higher Education Academy and Post graduate Certificate in Higher Education (January 2019).

Research

My doctoral and postdoctoral research focused on the risk and ambiguity attitudes, consumer behaviour and central bank policies. More broadly, I am interested in financial risk management, consumer choices, and decision making in general. I am currently working on producing publications from my thesis and I am interested in doing research across various disciplines especially finance, economics and management. I am also interested in research in education, in particular my interest for closing the BAME gap within higher education, is why I am a member of the University of Leicester Black Excellence committee.
