I started at Murray Edwards (New Hall) as a Research Fellow in 1989, was appointed as a lecturer in the Faculty of Economics in 1992 and so became an official Fellow in Economics. For many years I was the Director of Studies in Economics for the college and also Rooms Tutor and Tutor. Currently I supervise economic history for the first year economists but my main role is as Finance Tutor for undergraduates, this involves helping and advising those students facing financial difficulties and complications.
