I am lecturer in Global Political Economy and received a Master degree in Economics and Development, and a PhD in Economics from the University of Leeds, UK. I was awarded the 2008 William R. Waters Research Grant and the 2010 Helen Potter Award from the Association for Social Economics, and the 2009 Kenneth Koford Memorial Prize from the Eastern Economic Association.
Research interests relate to group behaviour in socio-ecological interactions, the measurement of social norms, their impact on individual decision-making and well-being by combining critical theories around resource entitlements with an innovative use of time-series econometrics. Current research projects evolve around sustainable earnings, group inequality mapping, and cross-disciplinary approaches to climate justice and action.
I am currently Director of Studies for BSc International Development with Economics.
