Personal statement

I previously held academic appointments at the University of Southampton and at CASS Business School. After finishing my PhD at the University of Southampton in 2001, I spent one and half years doing research on wagering markets and another two years on a credit scoring project with Scottish Widows funded by EPSRC. I also spent one year doing research on bank risk management at CASS from 2004 to 2005.
