International and Macroeconomics

One of my teaching interests is in the field of applied macroeconomics and international macroeconomics with a particular focus on balance of payments models and exchange rate models. Current research activities are also consistently linked to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in this context.

Behavioural Economics

Following the 2008 financial crisis, I broadened my teaching interests to cover psychology based criticisms of rational choice based economic theory, leading to the launch of an introductory behavioural economics module in the second year of the BSc economics degree.

Alternative Perspectives in Economics

From the academic year 2015/16 onwards I have taken over the 'Alternative Perspectives in Economics' module in the second year of the BSc economics degree. This module embraces a critical rationalist epistemological perspective and discusses alternative approaches to economic theory and practice against this background.
