About Me

I work as a Senior Lecturer in Economics at Birmingham City University, at the Department of Accounting, Finance and Economics at the Birmingham City Business School. I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

I completed my PhD in the Economics Division at the Leeds University Business School (supervised by Prof Gary Dymski, Prof Giuseppe Fontana and Dr Peter Phelps). I hold BSc Economics from SOAS, University of London (supervised by Prof Jan Toporowski) and MSc Economics from the University of Leeds (supervised by Prof Gary Dymski). I have previously worked at the Open University.

My research interests include income and wealth inequality, distributive impact of financial sector development, macroeconomic modelling (including stock-flow consistent models), econometrics, Kaleckian and Post-Keynesian economics, feminist economics, financial economics, development economics, and history of economic thought.

I am a member of Reteaching Economics and I sit on the executive board of D-Econ, the Advisory Board of the Women’s Budget Group Early-Career Network, the Section Editors Board of E-Finanse Journal, and the Editorial Board of The Mint Magazine.

I was awarded the 2016 EAEPE-Simon young scholar prize for the best paper presented at the 28th Annual Conference of the European Association for Evolutionary Political Economy.

I have been involved in working with the UK government as Assistant Economist in the Department of Health, Medicines and Pharmacy Directorate. I also contributed to policy reports, collaborating with Think-tank Action for Social Change
