Overview

I hold a Ph.D. in Economics from the London School of Economics and Political Science. I am an applied microeconomic theorist, with particular interests in the economics of crime and conflict.

My work is on topics ranging from how informal work alters the incentives to search for work whilst receiving unemployment insurance to how unanticipated changes in behaviour due to intoxication can explain alcohol-fuelled violence. For my latest working papers, please visit my personal website.

I am an Academic Fellow of the University's Crime & Security Institute, an Associate of the Economics Network and a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I am also the current Director of Undergraduate Economics Programmes.
