About

I am an economist interested in international trade, global value chain, cross-boarder merger and acquisition and foreign direct investment. My current research focuses on the effect of international trade on firm-level outcomes and labour market outcomes such as sector unemployment. I have experience in conduction both theoretical and empirical research. 

Apart from research, I also have extensive teaching experience across different programmes, gained from teaching a range of subjects in Economics and Quantitative Methods at Lancaster Univerisity. I am passionate about teaching and supporting my students to achieve their academic goals.
