Personal profile


I am a Senior Lecturer in the Finance and Economics at Hertfordshire Business School. I hold a PhD in Economics from SOAS, University of London. My research broadly focuses on financial integration and financialisation, with particular reference to two key themes and areas.

The first is the context of emerging and developing countries. I am interested in analysing the drivers and consequences of their integration into the global financial system and transformation of their domestic financial sector. Of particular interest is the question of how these changes affect their subordinate economic position, and the related development policy implications.

The second is the specific role of institutional investors, and pension funds in particular. I am interested in analysing their role as investors, both in advanced and emerging economies, particularly the question around their supposed long-term financial investment horizons. I am also interested in the question of how the growth of funded pensions has affected pension outcomes and distribution.

My research uses a range of different methods, both quantitative and qualitative. I am also keen to promote pluralism in economics teaching and research, as well as interdisciplinarity, especially with "neighbouring" disciplines such as international poltical economy and economic geography.

My work in these areas is published in several book chapters and journals such as Environment and Planning A, the Socio-Economic Review, Development and Change and the Journal of International Financial Markets, Institutions and Money. I have recently co-edited a collective volume published by Routledge, on Emerging Economies and the Global Financial System: Post-Keynesian Analysis. I have also collaborated with a range of external non-academic institutions, such as UNCTAD, ODI and TEPSA.
