I currently serve as an Associate Professor of the Department of Finance and Tax and the UCT Tax Institute for Fiscal Research. I am also a postdoctoral research fellow of the IBFD. In these roles, I am currently engaged in two major research projects, namely:
1) Sustainable Tax Governance in Developing Countries through Global Tax Transparency (DeSTaT), funded by the Research Council of Norway (2012 - 2017).
2) Special Tax Zones, a collaborative research project under the auspices of the International Bureau of Fiscal Documentation (IBFD) (started in 2016).
I am a Chartered Accountant (SA) and registered tax practitioner. I obtained my PhD in 2009. I serve as the Secretary-General of the South African branch of the International Fiscal Association.
My publications focus on an international readership.
