I joined Aston Business School in May 2016 after completing my PhD at the University of Leicester. Prior to joining Aston, I worked at the University of Huddersfield as a lecturer in economics, and as a research associate on an ESRC-DFID funded project titled 'Finance, politics and growth' which had a strong focus on Africa.
My research interests are broad and stem across two main disciplines: development finance and sports economics. I am happy to supervise PhDs students in either area.
Outside academia I am a keen runner and footballer having 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.
