About me

I am an LSE Fellow in International Political Economy at the Department of International Relations at LSE.

As a political economist, I connect institutions and ideas in my work to explain institutional reactions as political outcomes. My work discusses the global financial safety net, the transformation of global finance, challenges of monetary-fiscal cooperation, and the role of central banking in the green transition.

Before joining LSE, my PhD research at the University of Warwick has analysed the growing prominence of central bankers not just in stabilising, but rather in shaping financial markets. Drawing on the emerging field of critical macrofinance, I view the quintessential task of central banking not simply as reacting to changes in inflation with interest rate measures, but more broadly as ensuring a certain level of liquidity within the system. In line with the observation that states increasingly govern ‘through’ markets, I seek to understand more clearly how interactions between public and private actors shape the evolving norms of monetary, fiscal, and financial stability policy.

Not available to supervise MPhil/PhD students.
