I am Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in Political Economy in the King's College London Department of Political Economy and a Visiting Research Fellow at the International Inequalities Institute at the London School of Economics (LSE).

Prior to joining King’s, I was a post-doctoral researcher at the LSE International Inequalities Institute.

I received my PhD in Political Science from the LSE in 2017, where I was supervised by David Soskice and Dominik Hangartner.

My research fields are comparative political economy, political behaviour, and macroeconomics.  

My current areas of interest include: taxing the rich; inequality and redistribution; varieties of capitalism and growth models; the knowledge economy; and the politics of macroeconomic policies.
