I am interested in the Economics of the Household, in how decisions about working for pay, spending or saving impact on individuals within the context of their household, in how inequalities and violence may arise within the household, and how policy and the socio-economic context can help ameliorate or worsen these inequalities. I am a Co-Investigator on the research project Gender and intra-household entitlements. A cross-national longitudinal analysis.
Along the same lines, I am interested in the Economics of Happiness and in approaches and theories that enrich the notions and working scope of well-being, mainly on the Capabilities Approach. I am currently involved in the Capabilities Measurement Project headed by Paul Anand.
Currently chairing the making of DD126 Economics in Context, previously chaired the making of DD209 Running the economy.
Chaired the presentation of DD209 Running the Economy, DB123 You and your money: personal finance in context, DD202 Economics and Economic Change, and DD309 Doing Economics: People, Markets, and Policy. Been a module team member of these and other modules.
Was lucky enough to also be a tutor for DB123 You and your money: personal finance in context
At postgraduate level, I have taught Trade and Development at Economics, University of Essex (2011-2012), and currently leading a lecture on Human Development and the Capabilities Approach under the Grand Union Doctoral Training Programme, and participating in the Faculty's training programmes also.
