I am an Associate Professor of Political Economy (Reader in the UK system) in the Department of Political Economy at King’s College London. I am also an external associate at the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO).

My research focuses on social unrest (including riots and protests), social order and historical political economy.

Before joining King’s, I was the Bevil Mabey Fellow in Economics at St Catharine’s College, University of Cambridge. I studied applied mathematics at Harvard (BA) and economics at Oxford (DPhil/PhD). Before my PhD, I worked as an associate consultant in the NYC offices of Bain & Company.
