I am currently a Teaching Fellow in the School of Economics at the University of Surrey responsible for a Business History course. I have also recently been teaching for the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), Richmond: the American University in London and also for Coventry University's London MBA Programme. I have previously been a Senior Research Fellow at Oxford University and taught at the LSE and the University of Warwick's Economics Department.

My current research interests can be divided into five main categories:

1. Business decision making during war
2. The effectiveness of economic sanctions
3. Military spending and resource allocation
4. Twentieth century war and trade
5. Economics of the airline industry

In the summer of 2015, I earned my fifth teaching award, this time for Undergraduate teaching at Warwick. In 2013 I became the first faculty member at the LSE to have received three awards for outstanding teaching. My thoughts about teaching economics were featured in an Economics Network newsletter, which can be found (here).

I received my PhD from the London School of Economics and both my Bachelors and Masters degrees from the University of Chicago.
