Personal profile

Research Interests

I am Senior Lecturer in Finance and Research Convenor of the Economics, Finance and Entrepreneurship group at Aston Business School. Previously, I worked for the University of Hull, where I was involved in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and was the Program Leader of the MSc Financial Management, and the Alliance Manchester Business School as a PhD student and Teaching Assistant. I have an MSc in Finance from Universidade Católica Portuguesa gained with a First, and studied Engineering at the Universidade do Minho, where I graduated with a Distinction. Before embarking on my PhD in Finance, I worked for several years 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.

I supervised successfully four PhD dissertations, and my research has been published in well-ranked academic journals such as the European Journal of Operational Research, International Journal of Finance and Economics, Economics Letters, Annals of Operations Research, and Journal of International Financial Markets, Institutions & Money, and International Review of Financial Analysis.

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