Student education

My teaching has always been shaped by my expertise and interests in various fields of economics. I have taught across a wide range of modules, from Mathematics and Statistics (LUBS1285) to Theories of Growth, Value and Distribution (LUBS2040).

More recently, I have specialised in modules related to macroeconomics at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, such as International Economics: Integration and Governance (LUBS3590) and Global Economic Coordination and Governance (LUBS5140M). I am also particularly interested in teaching modules related to heterodox economics, e.g. Economic Perspectives and Controversies (LUBS1291) and Economic Theory and Applications (LUBS1951).
