Personal details

I joined the School in September 2005, having previously taught at the University of Leeds and Nottingham Trent University. I hold a PhD in economics, an MA in economics and a BSc in economics and mathematics, all awarded by the University of Leeds. I am a member of the Centre for Philosophy and Political Economy.

Teaching

  • Economics for Management (core 1st year module on BA Management Studies)
  • Foundations of Knowledge (core 1st year module on BA Management Studies)
  • Research Methods (core 2nd year module on BA Management Studies)
  • Ecology and Sustainability (optional 2nd year module on BA Management Studies)
  • Quantitative Research and Analysis (core training module of distance-learning PhD)

Research

My current research focuses on (i) ethics and finance; (ii) social investment and the nascent social investment market; and (iii) the political economy of social reproduction and the commons. I have also written on value theory and its relationship to the problematic of measure; the political economy of education; globalisation; time, working hours and productivity; and social movements and anti-capitalism. I was a member The Free Association writing collective and an editor of Turbulence: Ideas for Movement. Most of my published texts are available on Academia and ResearchGate.

Supervision

I have supervised seven doctoral students to successful completion, most recently Dr Gareth Brown, who was awarded his PhD (‘Can a Knife of Shadows Cut Real Flesh from a Living Tree? The Organisation of Imaginal Commons’) in 2015. I currently supervise one doctoral candidate, Ms Vivian Latinwo-Olajide (‘Black affect and minor feelings:  unbecoming unemployable, becoming “human”’). A full list of supervisions is available here.
