Profile

I joined the University in 2003 as a Teaching Fellow while I was finishing my PhD in Economics at The University of York which I completed in 2004. Currently I am an Associate Professor in Economics (teaching focused) and I have been involved in Learning and Teaching Leadership for over 10 years currently serving as Director of Teaching Excellence and Quality Assurance in the School of Business. In August I will take on the role of Deputy Head of Department in the Economics, Finance and Accounting department

Research

I am mostly interested in research in the area of the economics of education motivated by the will to study observable characteristics of the education sector. Topics of interest include: the debate about the public finance of higher education; the impact of peer effects on the quality of the education and on individual's labour market conditions; the relationship between education and inequality intergenerational mobility of human capital.

I am also interested in carrying out research in the related fields of labour economics public economics and economics of discrimination using microeconometric techniques and applied theory models. In general I am interested in studying microeconomics and individual choice behaviour.
