Research Summary

My research is at the interface of political economy and economic history of education. My work combines historical and international perspectives and explores the links between the development of educational systems, Kondratiev cycles and social change. Another key area of my research is the political economy of national and global higher education (especially the origins and consequences of the connections and tensions between funding and access policies).
