Professor of Enterprise

My research expertise is in regional economic development (particularly EU Cohesion policy) and labour market issues (social inclusion and wage inequality).

I've contributed to several EU funded research projects, acted as Principal Investigator and has delivered research and policy advice to the Scottish Government, European Commission and the Council of the European Union. I'm a co-investigator of the ESRC Productivity Insights Network, where I'm the Health, Wellbeing and Demographic Change Theme Lead and Lead for supporting early career researchers. I'm a Co-ordinator of the EU Cohesion Policy Research Network.

I started my career as a local government policy officer in economic development focusing on youth unemployment, regeneration and community planning. I've worked in the private sector as an Economist and Economic Consultant.
