About me

I have been a Professor of Financial Crime at the University of the West of England, Bristol since 2013. I previously taught at the University of Glamorgan where I was awarded a Ph.D.  I am head of the Global Crime, Justice and Security Research Group. 

Area of expertise

Much of my research has focused on financial crime with particular reference to money laundering, market manipulation and terrorism financing.  I am the series founder and editor for Routledge's The Law Relating to Financial Crime and have published numerous scholarly articles and monographs on financial crime. 

I am an invited contributor to symposia at the United Nations, NATO, the Law Commission; Royal United Services Institute for Defence and Security Studies; PWC and UK Finance.  I have delivered counter-terrorism financing training both nationally and internationally to NATO, EUROPOL, CEPOL and multinational financial services companies.  I have been asked to consult on numerous financial crime matters for the media including Bloomberg News, the BBC, CNBC, the Sunday Times and the Wall Street Journal. 

My research has been commissioned by InnovateUK, the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), LexisNexis Risk Solutions, the City of London Police Force, ICT Wilmington Risk & Compliance, the France Telecom Group and the European Social Fund.

I welcome PhD proposals in any aspect of financial crime.
