    Research Interests

    I joined Aston Business School in July 2016 where I am Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in Finance and Research Director of the Economics, Finance and Entrepreneurship Department.

    Previously, I worked for Alliance Manchester Business School as a Teaching Assistant, and Hull University Business School as a Lecturer in Finance, where I was involved in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and was the Program Leader of the MSc Financial Management. I have an MSc in Finance from Universidade Católica Portuguesa and studied Engineering at Universidade do Minho. Before embarking on my PhD, I worked in the manufacturing industry in various management positions. I also taught in the MBA programs of the Hull University Business School in Hong Kong, Singapore and Bahrain.

    My research has been published in well-ranked academic journals such as the European Journal of Operational Research, International Journal of Finance and Economics, Journal of Business Research, Annals of Operations Research, Journal of International Financial Markets, Institutions & Money, Economics Letters, and Research in International Business and Finance, and presented at several international conferences, such as the Financial Management Association, European Financial Management Association, Applied Financial Economics, USA Energy Economics/International Association for Energy Economics, Real Options, British Accounting & Finance Association, and International Finance and Banking Society, among others.

    I have been ad-hoc referee for the RAND Journal of Economics, Journal of Management and Organization, European Journal of Operational Research, Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control, European Journal of Finance, Omega, International Journal of Management Science, Journal of the Operational Research Society, and Central European Journal of Operations Research, among others.
