I am an economist, focusing on the political economy of rapid, policy-induced structural change that is required for the transition to a low-carbon economy. I consider questions of both financing low-carbon investments and divesting from high-carbon ones, and analyze the characteristics of stable, equitable growth with climate policy. My research also analyzes the measurement and interpretation of economic inequality, and the characteristics of distributions of quantifiable social phenomena more generally.

I work as an Assistant Research Professor at the Political Economy Research Institute (PERI) and the Department of Economics of the University of Massachusetts Amherst. I am also affiliated with UCL's Institute of Innovation and Public Purpose, and with theĀ Department of Economics of SOAS University of London and the Science Policy Research Unit (SPRU) of the University of Sussex where I have worked before. I hold a PhD in Economics from the New School for Social Research.
