A specialist in economic and trade warfare, I am currently a Teaching Fellow in the School of Economics at the University of Surrey responsible for Economic History, Business History and economics courses.
I have previously taught at SOAS, Richmond: the American University in London, LSE, Warwick and also for Coventry University's London MBA Programme. Between 2011-2017, I was also Senior Research Fellow at Oxford University.
My current research interests can be divided into five main categories:
1. Business decision making during war
2. Twentieth century war and trade
3. The effectiveness of economic sanctions
4. Military spending and resource allocation
5. Economics of the airline industry
In the summer of 2017, I earned my sixth teaching award in seven years. I've previously been awarded two teaching awards at Warwick and in 2013 I became the first faculty member at the LSE to have received three awards for outstanding teaching.
I received my PhD from the London School of Economics and both my Bachelors and Masters degrees from the University of Chicago.
