Overview

I am a Professor of Economic Development at University of Hertfordshire.  I worked as an advisor for international institutions such as the United Nations Development Programme and acted as external evaluator for the EU research funding programmes. Currently, I am Editor-in-Chief of Competition and Change, an interdisciplinary journal, publishing high quality research on globalisation, financialisation and political economy.

 

My research focuses on social consequences of economic structure and policy for poorer sections of society. A recent work in this area has been a nine-country project, funded by the European Union,  investigating resilience and hardship in post-crisis Europe. This research had strong interdisciplinary elements with publications in social policy and sociology journals. Currently, I am pursuing a related project that examines the post-crisis dynamics of indebtedness by low income households. Previously, my research focused on the governance of water and energy companies, viewing these as part of essential services with significant impact on the welfare of low income groups. My work in this area ranged from public vs private dilemma to the regulation of the incumbent companies and social consequences of different governance structures. Publications in this area include articles in Cambridge Journal of Economics, Industrial and Corporate Change, Development and Change. Recently, I extended this line of inquiry to access to land and rural resources and implications for food security. This is the subject of a current project, funded by UK-India Education and Research Initiative, focusing on varieties of tenure for rural resources in South India. This study also contains an interdisciplinary approach, bringing together scholars from development studies, food sciences, law and anthropology.
