At the LSE, he taught on Information Systems Management, Information Systems Security and Research Methods. He has contributed on 3 major EU-funded AML research projects, two of which are on the intersection between Information Systems and Anti-Money Laundering (projects Spotlight and GATE), and another one on Information Society (FIDIS). His research on AML and Risk has been featured in the select bibliography of the United Nations, while his work on ‘Data Growth and the Consequences to Anti-Money Laundering’ has won the Emerald Highly Commended Award from the Journal of Money Laundering Control. He has co-authored a large number of research deliverables on Anti-Money Laundering for the European Commission and the Future of Identity for the Information Society (FIDIS), a large scale 6-year EU-funded project with 25 academic/industry participants across the EU (including Microsoft and IBM), for which he was a Convener of its Steering Group. Additionally, he is the author of two books: Science’s First Mistake (on Methodology, Systems Theory, and the creation of Epistemological Paradoxes alongside Prof Ian Angell), published worldwide by Bloomsbury Academic, and ‘Technology and Anti-Money Laundering: A Systems Theory and Risk-Based Approach’, a monograph published worldwide by Edward Elgar. His book on AML entitled ‘Technology and Anti-Money Laundering’ is the first book to provide a coherent theoretical structure for Anti-Money Laundering research and practice based on Systems Theory, and the first book to provide an Information Systems perspective on Anti-Money Laundering. He is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (SFHEA), a Visiting Professor in Akal Business School (India) and a member of the scientific board of Geolab at the Ionian University in Corfu (Greece).
