I am a finance and psychology researcher who lectures in finance at King’s College Business School. My research and teaching interests are in behavioural finance, entrepreneurship, investment decision making and investment advice. I have a special interest in gender and inequality in business and finance. As a psychotherapist I also have a small practice dedicated to helping individuals and couples struggling with relationship difficulties.

Before joining King’s College, I was the CEO of a Fintech start up. Prior to that I gained 15 years banking experience from running structured derivates businesses and managing investment portfolios at institutions such as Standard Chartered Bank, Coutts & Co and Morgan Stanley. I contribute to our society by acting as the Vice Chair of governors at a primary school and serving as a trustee of Citizens Advice Camden.

I obtained my PhD from Cass Business School in 2018. My research combines my finance and psychology expertise to research gender difference and bias in financial advice. I continue to focus my research efforts on addressing gender bias and inequality in business and finance.
