Who am I?
How I’ll teach you
I have a passion for teaching and have taught across a number of undergraduate units in the Department of Economics, Policy and International Business at Manchester Metropolitan University. My approach to teaching – using group exercises, debates, policy exercises and more traditional pedagogical techniques – seeks to help students develop a critical and reflective approach to the study of economics and political science.

Research Expertise, Publications & Grants
My research sits at the intersection of international political economy, EU studies and British politics. My personal research philosophy is underpinned by a multidisciplinary approach to the study of political science as I continue to work across disciplinary divides within political economy. My research has evolved under the umbrella of banking, financial stability, macroprudential practices and post-crisis regulatory reform. In this regard, my research examines post-crisis transformations in economic policy, financial market regulation, macroprudential policy and alternative regional economic development.
