      About me

      I joined Warwick in January 2019 as a teaching focussed Associate Professor and Director of Widening Participation, and I became Director of Graduate Studies (Taught Degrees) in August 2020. I am an Associate of the Economics Network, and in June 2021 I became a Fellow of the Warwick International Higher Education Academy (WIHEA), where I chaired the Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) Learning Circle in 2021/2022.

      I am an applied behavioural and experimental economist, with published research looking at nudge theory, and understanding how monetary/non-monetary incentives impact individuals’ behaviour and promote the formation of pro-environmental habits. I also maintain research interests in the field of applied economics education and have an interest on understanding the drivers of students’ attainment gaps and engagement (with classes and technology), with special focus on students coming from social mobility backgrounds.

      Alongside this, I am an Associate Editor for Humanities and Social Sciences Communications (September 2022 – present), and Deputy Director of Behavioural Environmental Economics Team (BEET – August 2020).
