Personal Statement

I am a Lecturer in the Department of Economics at the University of Strathclyde since August 2018. I obtained my Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Strathclyde in November 2017. During the 2017/2018 academic year I held a Teaching Associate position at the University of Strathclyde with Lecturer/Coordinator responsibilities for two advanced macroeconomic classes taught to honours and M.Sc. students.


Research Interests

I'm an applied theorist with research interests at the intersection of behavioural economics, the microeconomics of the employment relationship, and the macroeconomic theory of wages and unemployment.

My approach consists in drawing from psychology and sociology to gain a deeper understanding of the behavioural aspects that underlie the labour contract, and to analyse their macroeconomic implications for the cyclical behaviour of wages and unemployment. My current focus is on aspects of workers’ morale and effort provision, fairness, reciprocity, wage setting, unemployment and labour market fluctuations.

My preferred method of inquiry is theory and mathematical modelling, but my most recent research also involves experimental and quantitative methods.

I am also generally open and curious towards multidisciplinary approaches to all fields of economics, especially when these engage with novel insights from psychology and sociology.

Expertise & Capabilities

I have expertise in:

1) Macroeconomic Theory;

2) Behavioural Economics (theory and experiments);

mainly within the areas of:

3) Labour Markets, Wages and Unemployment.

I am happy to supervise suitably qualified PhD students in these areas; please get in touch if you want to discuss a potential research project.
