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 is on political economy and economic history, and focuses on social order, conflict, and institutional change

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.
