I'm Lecturer in Political Economy at King's College London. My research examines the role of voluntary associations in solving complex public goods problems after natural disasters. My empirical approach is three-pronged, drawing on archives, historical sources, and field-work following large-scale natural disasters. In addition, I have a passion for the history of economic thought, which I believe can play a key role in advancing contemporary debates.
I received a PhD in Economics from George Mason University. I was previously an Assistant Professor at San Jose State University and a Fellow at the Center for History of Political Economy at Duke University.
