Welcome

I’ve set up this website, in addition to my university website, for people who want to know a little more about me.

I am afraid many of you may be disappointed. I don’t do extreme sports, I am not a hi-tech buff, I am not a secret expert on 18th-century maps, and I don’t even do gardening. Unless you are mainly interested in my economics, the only thing that is interesting on this website would be the section, ‘Non-economists I like to read’ under ‘Influences’.

Still, please enjoy the site. It would be at least more informative and interesting than my university website!
