He was previously a Research Fellow at the Centre for Financial Crime and Security Studies of the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI), a UK defence and security think-tank. While at RUSI, he led major multi-year research projects that explored the impact of technology on financial crime, as well as illicit trade risks in free-trade zones. He also published on a wide array of subjects including beneficial ownership transparency; corruption and fraud in the UK; and the financial footprint of cybercrime, cyber-enabled fraud and online IP piracy.

He gave testimony to the Australian Senate's Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade; the UK House of Commons' International Trade Committee; Canada's Commission of Inquiry into Money Laundering in British Columbia; and the Legal Committee of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe. He also presented before multiple other UK agencies, including the Joint Money Laundering Intelligence Taskforce and the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Illicit Trade, as well as the EU's Freeze and Seize Task Force.

His consultancy experience includes advising the Stolen Asset Recovery Initiative, a joint programme of the World Bank and UN Office on Drugs and Crime, as well as consulting in connection with several UK government-funded projects.
