Biography

I'm Senior Lecturer in the economics and finance group, specialising in macroeconomics. I have previously taught at Queen Mary University of London, Leicester, Hull and London Metropolitan Universities, and has been a Research Officer at the National Institute of Economic and Social Research in London and a Senior Research Fellow at the European Institute of the LSE. My emphasis in research is in social and behavioural theories and models of macroeconomics, as well as in more traditional areas of the discipline such as business cycles, fiscal policy and current accounts. I regularly publish in internationally renowned scientific journals and have extensive teaching experience virtually across the economics curriculum. I currently teach macroeconomics at various levels.

Research and scholarship

My current research interests are in macroeconomics with an emphasis on:

  • Behavioural macroeconomics (intertemporal discounting, social interactions)
  • Macroeconomics and economic sociology (status, social capital, social conflict)
  • Growth theory, international convergence
  • Inequality, distributive justice
  • Fiscal policy, deficits and debts
  • Economics of the euro and adjustment programmes

I am interested in supervising PhD students in any of the above areas.
