  • Official Fellow and Tutor in Economics

I joined St Peter’s in 2002, as lecturer and fellow in Economics. I gained a PhD in Economics from the University of Leicester with a thesis on “Fiscal Policy in Models of Economic Growth.”

Teaching

At St Peter’s, I teach the second/third year core Macroeconomics and Quantitative Economics courses, the first-year Introductory Economics, and two optional courses: Public Economics and International Economics. At the Department of Economics, I lecture on the core Macroeconomics course.

Research

I am interested in all areas of macroeconomics, both theoretical and empirical. My recent work has focused on fiscal policy, particularly debt dynamics and applications of spatial econometrics techniques to macroeconomic modelling.
