Student education

As a programme director I have a responsibility for the operation and academic coherence of the programmes I manage. I also have a similar responsibility to work with co-teaching schools for Joint Honours degrees including economics. 


I specialise in teaching Microeconomics and academic skills at Undergraduate level, and I contribute to Macroeconomic theory and Monetary Economics. I lead the core economic theory module in the first year and co-ordinate the joint honours final year research project. I also supervise and support Student research projects at UG, PG and Post-Graduate research level.
