I have an interdisciplinary approach to teaching, combining critical theories and economic geography with situated practice for the study of urban economic development.


I am the Co-Programme Leader of the MSc Programme in Urban Economic Development and currently lead one module:

DEVP0038 Urbanisation and Development for the postgraduate MSc Programme in Urban Economic Development. This module offers a critical introduction to the key economic concepts, theories and tools applied to problem diagnosis and policymaking in urbanisation and development;

DEVP0051 Economic Policy Evaluation Tools for the postgraduate MSc Programme in Urban Economic Development. The objective of this module is to introduce and critically assess methods and tools used by urban economic development policy makers and practitioners to evaluate policy choices, both before and after projects and policies have been approved.


I also contribute to other core modules of the MSc Programme in Urban Economic Development:

DEVP0018 Managing the City Economy. This module is designed to enhance the understanding of the city economy and train students in the application of economic criteria to the analysis and management of the city economy in both developing and developed countries.

DEVP0019 Practice in Urban Economic Development. This module explores the challenges of promoting inclusive economic development in urban areas both in developing and developed countries, offering students real-life platforms to examine the experiences of urban economic development and management practices.

BASC0018 Urban Inequalities and Global Development for UCL BASc Arts and Science Programme. This module is taught to undergraduate students and takes a critical look at ‘the urban’ in the context of development, globalization, and environmental change.
