Since returning to academia in August 2016 I have been a Senior Lecturer in economics at the University of Johannesburg. (Note: there is no structured tenure system in South Africa, but this corresponds loosely to an assistant professor position at a US institution).
From July 2014 to July 2016 I worked as an economist in the South African Parliamentary Budget Office and continued my intellectual/academic work in my own time. At the beginning of 2016 I was appointed as a Research Associate in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Johannesburg, and remained affiliated to the Southern African Labour and Development Research Unit (SALDRU). I was previously a lecturer and PhD candidate in the School of Economics at UCT and briefly a senior researcher at the Development Policy Research Unit. I received my PhD in Economics in 2014.
I have a very wide range of intellectual/academic interests – see my research page and sub-pages for some detail.
