Personal profile

General

I joined Aston Business School in January 2012. My previous position was Professor of Comparative Economics at SSEES University College London (since 2008), where I started as a lecturer in 1996. Prior to that I spent one year as a researcher at the University of California in Davis. My first academic post was at the Catholic University of Lublin, Poland. In the past I also served on the board of directors of a major privatised producer of herbs ‘Herbapol’, worked with OIC International on a business incubators programme and also spent some time in public administration as the deputy mayor of Lublin, responsible for economic matters.
