I am currently a PhD student in the Economics and Finance department in the Faculty of Business and Law. I specialise in Behavioural and Experimental Economics, and in my doctoral research, I look at how people make economic decisions on behalf of others.


I joined the Economics department in October 2018 after completing my bachelor's degree at the University of Nottingham.

My main interest is how people make Economic decisions for others and what motivates them when doing so. In all of my research, I like to draw insights from other fields, such as Psychology, Sociology and sometimes Philosophy.

My current research interests include:

Decision Making for Others
Lying Aversion
Limited Liability Incentive Schemes

Teaching Responsibilities

I teach introductory microeconomics and introductory macroeconomics in the undergraduate modules ‘Economics’ and ‘Economics for Business’. I am also currently supervising undergraduate students in their final year economic research projects.
