Biography

I joined the University of Glasgow in 2023 as a Lecturer in Political Economy.

My research is underpinned by one central question: how has the global economy changed since the 2008 financial crisis?

My current book project, Rebuilding the Fortress? Europe in a changing world economy, explores the return of industrial strategy and protectionist trade policy within the European Union over the past decade.

My first book, British Capitalism after the Crisis (Palgrave, 2019) provides an account of economic policymaking in the post-2008 period, arguing that this consolidated a series of weaknesses within British capitalism, including low productivity, regional imbalance, and over-dependence on finance-led growth.

My research encompasses a wide range of themes, including monetary policy, EU industrial strategy and trade policy, uneven development, state theory, European integration, welfare state restructuring, business power and Brexit.

I have published on these topics in numerous international peer-reviewed journals, including Review of International Political Economy, Journal of Common Market Studies, New Political Economy, Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers, Geoforum, British Journal of Politics and International Relations and Geoforum.

My research is informed by the tradition of classical political economy, which adopts a holistic and historicised perspective on continuity and change within global capitalism. My work is therefore inherently inter-disciplinary, drawing upon numerous fields including politics, international relations, geography, economic and social history, philosophy, and sociology.

Prior to joining Glasgow, I was a Lecturer in Politics at the University of Sheffield (2018 -2023), where I also undertook a post-doctoral Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship (2018 – 2021), and a PhD (2012 – 2016).  Before Sheffield, I completed an MA in International Political Economy at the University of York (2011 – 2012), and an honours degree (MA) in Philosophy and Politics at the University of Glasgow (2005 – 2009).
