Lecturer in Behavioural Sciences, Lancaster University

I am the 50th Anniversary Lecturer in Behavioural Sciences at Lancaster University Management School. I have a PhD in Economic Sociology from the University of Edinburgh. I have previously worked at the University of Edinburgh, Napier University, Gothenburg University, and King's College London.

I have been long interested in the nexus between individual and institutional level determinants of financial cognition and decision-making. My previous research has focussed on financial intermediaries in the Istanbul Stock Exchange.

I am currently exploring how savings and investment behaviours of immigrants are shaped by individual and institutional determinants in their host and home countries, and what these imply for scholarly and policy debates on socio-economic integration of immigrants in Europe
