Expertise: Labour Economics, Political Economy


I am a Lecturer ('Assistant Professor') at Warwick and a Research Associate at both CEP and CAGE (Competitive Advantage in the Global Economy). My main research area is applied microeconomics, with applications to crime, political economy, the labour market and technical change. Current projects include work on the 'returns to crime', the impact of targeted economic sanctions on firms, and further work on lobbying.
