Personal profile

Research interests

I am a Senior Lecturer in Economics. I hold a PhD from SOAS University of London, and prior to joining the University of Hertfordshire in 2023, I taught at the University of Winchester, Kings College London, and SOAS. My research interests focus on economic crises and restructuring in times of crisis, and my approach lies at the intersection between heterodox economics and international political economy. 

In my doctoral research I looked at the political economy of the crisis in the Eurozone and specifically its causes and manifestations in the case of Portugal. The thesis analysed the Eurozone's economic vulnerabilties, and it interrogated the power of finance and the relationship between internal and external drivers of neoliberal adjustment. 

My most recent research has looked at policy responses to contemporary crises - including those related to the environment and the Covid-19 pandemic. This work has focused on public banks. The research has investigated Brazilian and Portuguese public banks' role in mitigating the social impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as their role in financing public water and sanitation.

My work on public banks has been undertaken in collaboration with the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), Eurodad, the Municipal Services Project, the European Association for Public Banks, and Aqua Publica Europea. It has been funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), the Strategic Prioritoes Fund (UKRI), and the Participatory Research Fund (UKRI).
