About me

This is my private website. All views are my own unless otherwise specified. Feel free to leave a comment, engage in a discussion or suggest improvements.

Personal Background

I am a Lecturer in Finance at The Open University Business School. My research focuses on financial decisions by firms, the impact of financial structures on firm performance and the effects of venture capital funding. Several of my previous research projects were concerned with capital market activities of firms and the consequences of private equity financing in small and large enterprises. My research was funded by the UK~IRC through the Centre for Business Research, the German Federal Ministry of Finance, the German State Media Authorities and through the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme. I have taught financial management, corporate finance and microeonomics and supervised students in the MBA programme and Management Studies Tripos at Cambridge Judge Business School.

Research Interests

Financial constraints to investment and innovation, innovation dynamics in entrepreneurial firms, listed private equity, venture capital and buyout fund pricing, efficient capital markets, quantitative methods in economics and finance.
