Dr Kym Brown is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Banking and Finance teaching across a number of banking and international finance related subjects.

She has research interests in banking, bank performance, Islamic finance (including Shariah compliance within finance), developing country finance, financial development leading to economic growth, ethics in cryptocurrencies and inequality and investigating the plight of women publishing in finance journals.

Along with John Vaz and Alistair Milne (Loughtborough University), we are considering the measurement of money by expanding the triad functions of money theory. This is part of a project around fintech and cryptocurrencies which reconsiders what is money in the modern day era as new technologies confront us with new forms.
