Chief Research Officer

Tanya Gibbs

I joined the team in the autumn of 2017 to head the Institute's Research Department. I have a lot of experience in the field of education, training and surveys, gained both from university lecturing and elsewhere. I got my PhD at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies at the University of London and my MBA from the American University Sharjah. I am an expert on the issue of legislation for combating money laundering and financing the fight against terrorism. However, my attention has expanded to areas such as economic crime, including cybersecurity and the fight against corruption. I am also a visiting Professor teaching Business Law at the American University of Ras Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates. I enjoy reading, travelling and listening to classical music.
