About me

I joined the University of Westminster in September 2013. I hold a PhD in Politics and International Studies from the University of Leeds (ESRC-funded) and have taught in the Universities of Leeds and Manchester, the latter as a lecturer in International Political Economy.

I am chair of the Editorial Working Group of the Review of African Political Economy. I also jointly coordinate the International Initiative for Promoting Political Economy's Africa working group.

My book titled, Migrants, Borders and Global Capitalism: West African labour mobility and EU borders (Routledge) has been republished in 2016. It examines the contradictory economic and political agendas that create and constrain labour migration. My research now focuses on migration beyond capitalism and on capital-labour relations more generally.


I am a fellow of the Higher Education Academy, with particular recognition for- commitment to widening participation in higher education, support of students in their academic journey, and providing the environment for students to tackle challenging questions in the curriculum.

Modules taught:

I am module leader of 5PIRS011W Political Economy of Development and a short course on Asia, Africa and Latin America: Change in the Global South.

I also teach:

4PIRS003W Dilemmas of International Development

5PIRS001W Asia, Africa and Latin America: Dynamism and Change in the Global South.


My research interests include: international labour regimes, migration and remittances, financialisation and development, monetary policy and democracy in West Africa with a labour focus.
