I joined Aston Business School in May 2016 after spending two years working close to my hometown in West Yorkshire, at the University of Huddersfield as a lecturer in economics.
Prior to that I spent almost ten years in the East Midlands studying at both the University of Leicester and the University of Nottingham. I have also worked as a research associate on an ESRC-DFID funded project “Finance, politics and growth” which had a strong focus on Africa.
Outside academia I have a strong interest in sports. I am a keen runner and footballer and have competed at a high level in both.
I am prepared to supervise research students in any area of my research interest and additionally in certain development economics topics.
