This academic year, several new members of staff have joined the Department. This is who they are.
“It has been a long journey to get to the position of lecturer in IPE here at King’s College London. My interest in the subject was sparked when I studied politics and IR as an undergraduate at the University of Warwick. I pursued my fascination with the study of contemporary capitalism, first through doing an MA in global political economy at the University of Sussex, and then through undertaking a PhD at York University in Toronto.
It was during my doctoral studies that I developed a commitment to doing research that is both unerring in its empirical rigor and unwavering in its critical orientation. My areas of specialism include agri-food studies, global value chain analysis, and the political economy of energy. As well as contributing to the core course for the International Political Economy MA, I will be leading the Masters courses in Global Economic Governance and the International Political Economy of Oil and Gas.”
