I’m an Assistant Professor in the N/Lab and NUBS at the University of Nottingham. I hold a PhD in Economic Anthropology and specialise in the study of informal economies, particularly through ethnographic and computational network analysis methods. I’m interested in the intersection of economic anthropology and human-computer interaction, although I sometimes also dabble in the philosophy of social science. I teach and supervise on a variety of undergraduate and postgraduate modules, including consumer behaviour, digital marketing and research projects. My Google Scholar profile can be found here.

I am also available for PhD supervision.  If you would like to undertake a research project with me please send a copy of your CV and proposal.
