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.
Teaching news: I will be teaching a brand new module at Queen's called Communicating Economics. The module is for first-year undergraduates, and the first intake will be the Autumn Semester of 2019-2020. I aim to empower students to talk and write coherently and concisely about economics and the economy. Part of this involves learning about good data visualisation.
