My research interests cover business history, the role of accountability, corporate social responsibility, Risk disclosure and accounting disclosure from a historical perspective. My work examines managerial disclosure and the performance of oil companies during crisis and major events such as nationalisation and independence.
Since my research draws from a range of inter-disciplinary approaches, I managed to publish in a wide variety of inter-disciplinary journals which demonstrates sustainable excellence in research.
I am happy to supervise PhD students in these areas as well as in the broad area of accounting history and business history.
