Personal profile


I am a Senior Lecturer in Economics at the University of Hertfordshire. I joined UH in September 2022 after previous appointments at Kingston University and as a fixed-term lecturer at the University of East London (UEL). I trained as Development Economist at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) where I obtained an MSc and later a PhD in Economics. Prior to that, I studied Economics and Political Sciences at the University of Münster (Germany) and Sciences Po Lille (France).

Research interests

I specialise in structural transformation and industrial policy in sub-Saharan Africa, combining insights from post-Keynesian macroeconomics, theories of industrial organisation and the firm and political economy. My research advances the concepts of demand-led structural transformation and domestic market formation and explores how accumulation processes are shaped and constrained by the growth of domestic consumer and intersectoral demand, monopolistic market structures and historically formed power relations. Other research interests include: inclusive curricula and housing.
