I am a Lecturer in Macroeconomics, within the Economics and Finance Subject Group, at Portsmouth Business School. I have over eight years’ experience lecturing and tutoring economics and related modules across the undergraduate and postgraduate curriculum. My research focuses on the changes in financial and macroeconomic relationships under crisis conditions.
Before coming to the University of Portsmouth, I held academic positions at the University of Keele and the University of the West Indies. I also had a stint in banking supervision at the Central Bank of Trinidad and Tobago. I obtained a BSc in Economics and an MPhil in Agricultural Economics from the University of the West Indies, and an MSc in Economics and Econometrics from the University of Nottingham. I also hold a PhD in Economics and a PG Certificate in Higher Education Teaching from the University of Keele. I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a member of the Royal Economic Society. I regularly review for a number of international scholarly journals in the fields of economics, finance, and other related disciplines.
My research interests are in the areas of applied econometrics, energy economics, energy finance, financial stability analysis, topics in natural resource economics, and economic issues in small island developing states.
Applications are invited for self-funded PhD positions on the energy and the macroeconomy project.
I currently coordinate and lecture on the following modules:
- U30870 Advanced Economics (level 6 - UG)
- U25292 Economics (level 7 - PG)
- U20444 International Economics (level 5 - UG)
I serve as a supervisor to students reading the U30871 Economics Research Project (level 6 - UG) and I guest lecture on U20461 Development Economics (level 6 - UG). I am BMC certified, and I provide Bloomberg terminal demonstrations on Open Days and Applicant Experience Days for the Economics and Finance Subject Group.
