I'm Assistant Professor for Technology, Resilience & Europe. I teach, research and advise government bodies on technology and grand societal challenges, covering cybersecurity, digital/crypto markets, industrial policy and economic strategy in challenging geopolitical environments, including the rise of fascist movements in the transatlantic area. I teach in  BMS, EEMCS and S&T faculties, and collaborate frequently in research with the DACS department of the EEMCS faculty.

I've published widely on financial stability, banking crises and economic growth in Europe (four books), how the UK and Europe have managed Brexit, how the US and Europe are responding to the rise of MAGA Republicanism, how both sides of the Atlantic are responding to crypto markets, and how Europe and the US are responding to Russian and Chinese geopolitical threats.
