Biography

Dr Atiqur Khan is a Senior Lecturer (Finance and Governance) in the Business School. His research broadly focuses on the resilience of the financial system (in particular the banking sector) in connection with regulations, risk management, sustainability, climate change, and macroeconomic dynamics. He has been collaborating with researchers at different institutions including Bangor University, Leicester University, SOAS University, Brunel University, and University of East Anglia (United Kingdom); United States Department of the Treasury (USA); Deakin University and Curtin University (Australia); University of Waikato (New Zealand); and Xiamen University, and Taylor's University (Malaysia).

Before joining Roehampton University in May 2023, Dr Khan was a Senior Research Fellow at Bangor University (UK). He achieved a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Individual Fellowship (MSCA-IF) and was involved in a research project aimed at exploring the roles of the banking system in the transition towards a sustainable and green economic system on the grounds of changing climate and environmental issues. At the same time, the project investigated the resilience of the banking system during such a transition process. Later he was awarded a project funded by the Development Bank of Wales to explore the responses of Welsh SMEs in connection with the UK and Welsh environmental policies. Earlier, he achieved an FRGS research grant (awarded by the Malaysian Government) to explore the economic feasibility of renewable energy in connection to GHG emissions and storage, agricultural prices, agricultural employment, and deforestation focusing on the Malaysian agricultural sector.

In addition, Dr Khan has previous teaching experience at Bangor University (the UK), Curtin University (Malaysia), and the University of Rajshahi (Bangladesh). Further, he has experience supervising research students (both MPhil and PhDs). Presently involved in the supervision of two PhDs.
