I am an economic historian with research interests in banking crises, corporate governance, innovation policy, cultural economics, and demographic change. My research mostly addresses issues in the business and financial history of the Netherlands, and the economic and social history of Ireland.
Research News I have completed a new working paper on Dutch monetary policymaking during the interwar period (co-authored with Philip Fliers). We explore policy formation, implementation and impact, and mix quantitative with qualitative analysis.
I will be teaching a brand new first-year undergraduate module at Queen's called Communicating Economics. I aim to empower students to talk and write coherently and concisely about economics and the economy.
I will also be taking over the teaching of the microeconomics component of the Queen's MBA. My plan is to teach using CORE Econ, supplemented with HBS case studies.
