I am Associate Professor in the Economics of Globalisation and the International Economy at Leeds University Business School. I hold a PhD and MSc in Development Economies from the School of Oriental and African Studies, a Postgraduate Certification in Econometrics from Birkbeck College, and an undergraduate degree in Economics from the Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration.
I am a pluralist Macro-Development Economist with an interest in financial and monetary dynamics in developing and emerging economies. My work aims to break down boundaries both with regards to disciplines and the methodological breadth of Economics itself. I have published in several highly regarded journals such as Environment and Planning A, the Cambridge Journal of Economics, New Political Economy, Development and Change, the Journal of Post Keynesian Economics, Competition and Change etc. I actively engage with policy making in developing and emerging economies and beyond and have conducted consultancy projects for the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (Unctad), the European Foundation for Progressive Studies (FEPS), the Foreign Commonwealth Office (FCO), and the Brazilian Central Bank. I have also participated in several large European Funding projects (AUGUR and FESSUD) and have won external funding from the British Academy Newton Fund, the Austrian Chamber of Workers, and the Independent Social Research Foundation (ISRF). I am an active member of several academic organisations, including the International Initiative for the Promotion of Political Economy (IIPPE), the Post Keynesian Study Group (PKSG) and the Reteaching Economics Network.
