I am a Senior Lecturer in International Development at the University of Northampton. I studied Development and Economics at SOAS, and gained a MSc in Development Economics and a PhD in Economics.
My main research interests relate to the HIV epidemic in sub-Saharan Africa and draws on a range of disciplines including economics, development studies, public health and social epidemiology. I am also interested in the introduction of heterodox and pluralist teaching into the standard economics curriculum in higher education institutions in the UK, and specialise in the teaching of the History of Economic Thought.
Recent research activities include the publication of a special issue of the Review of African Political Economy on ‘The Political Economy of HIV’ in September 2015 which I co-edited with Deborah Johnston and Matteo Rizzo, as well as articles published in Qualitative Research and Global Public Health.
I am also working on an edited textbook with Elisa van Waeyenberge titled 'Recharting the History of Economic Thought'. This new book will be aimed at undergraduate students, and takes a thematic, rather than chronological, approach to the subject. Many, if not all, the chapters will be authored by members of Reteaching Economics.
