    Biography

    I am a behavioural economist and joined Aston University in October 2020. My primary research interests lie within the area of charitable giving and philanthropy, with a focus on donor behaviour. I am currently reading for my PhD within this field.

    I currently teach Introductory Business Economics, International Business Economics, and Mathematics for Economics and have a keen interest in adopting technology to enhance the learning experience. 

    Research Interests

    My research interests lie within behavioural economics and experimental economics. My current PhD research focuses on the non-profit sector, where I am investigating the motives that underpin the decision to donate. Specifically, I am interested in how information pertaining to the financial performance of charities affects the behaviour of donors.
