Personal profile


I am an Associate Professor of Research in the Finance and Economics at Hertfordshire Business School. I hold a PhD in Economics from SOAS, University of London. My research focuses on macro-finance, i.e. understanding the structure of the financial system and its impact on the economy. Besides contributing to academic debates, the goal of my research is formulating policy-relevant proposals for a fairer and more equitable financial system.

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.

I have published several articles on these topics, and delivered contract research and consultancies for international organisations, think-tanks and trade unions.
