Who am I?
Who am I?
I joined the Department of Economics in September 2003 after obtaining a BSc Economics at Manchester Metropolitan University in 1999 and an MA at the University of Manchester in 2000. I completed my PhD thesis on European Monetary Unification in January 2008. Since then I have been researching on the topic of Euro-zone debt crisis, fiscal policy in monetary union and the effectiveness of European Central Bank policies. I was the Economics subject leader for Combined Honours from 2004-2011 and the first year tutor of the Economics Programme from 2011-2013. I am currently the third year tutor of the Economics Programme. I have been involved in the delivery of a number of units ranging from Introductory/Advanced Macroeconomics to Economics of European Monetary Union. I have appear frequently on media to comment on the Greek debt crisis and the problems experiencing the Euro-zone. I am a member of the Economic and Social Development Cluster.
