Nadeem joined the Otago Business School in June 2018 as a senior lecturer in Accounting. He is also Director of Master of Professional Accounting at the University of Otago. Prior to his appointment at the University of Otago, he served as an accounting lecturer (2017–2018) in the Department of Accounting, Auckland University of Technology. He graduated from Lincoln University in 2017 as a PhD in Accounting and Finance. His doctoral thesis, completed in just two years and two months, investigated the efficiency of intellectual capital and its links with firm performance in developed, emerging and frontier markets worldwide.

Nadeem has taught accounting courses, such as Sustainability Accounting and Reporting, Management Accounting, and Advanced Management Accounting, at both undergraduate and post-graduate levels. His active research interests include, but are not limited to, corporate governance, corporate social responsibility, environmental accounting and auditing, and intellectual capital. Nadeem presents his research work at international conferences on a regular basis and won the best research interactive paper award at 2017 AFAANZ conference, Adelaide, Australia.

Nadeem has published more than a dozen papers in leading journals, including Corporate Governance: An International Review, Asia-Pacific Journal of Management, International Review of Economics and Finance, Australian Accounting Review, Journal of Intellectual Capital, and Journal of Cleaner Production, among others. His co-authored article titled “To value companies like Amazon and Facebook, we need to look beyond dollars and assets” has also appeared in The Conversation, an Australian not-for-profit media outlet.

Nadeem has already supervised a PhD student to completion and currently is supervising two PhD students in the areas of climate change risk disclosure and investor perception and ESG. He is also keen to take on new PhD students in the areas of corporate governance, corporate social responsibility, climate change risk disclosure, and intellectual capital.
