Biography

I joined University of Salford as a Lecturer of Accounting in September 2015. I hold a PhD in Accounting from the University of Plymouth School of Management (October, 2015). I, also, hold an MSc in International Accounting and Finance (with distinction) from the University of Stirling (November, 2011). Past academic positions held include a post as "Research Fellow" (university of Plymouth), "Lecturer" (Plymouth University International College), "Teaching Assistant" (Stirling University, where I initially started my PhD), "Teaching Assistant/ Tutor" (Mansoura University).

My current research areas include Informativeness of Narrative Reporting, Risk Governance, International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), and Corporate Governance Mechanisms. I am, particularly, interested in market based accounting research and investigating the relationship between mandatory adoption of IFRS and voluntary disclosure of information.
