Biography

I am an Industrial Economist with extensive research and teaching experience. My recent research has modelled the incentives of colluding firms, with the aims of explaining real-world collusive behaviour and improving competition policy to regulate collusion and cartels. My ongoing research examines hub and spoke cartels.  I have taught Microeconomics, Industrial Organisation and Competition Policy and have a keen interest in using technology to enhance teaching and learning.
