I have been working as a course coordinator and Lecturer in Economics at the University of Newcastle, NSW, Australia since 2018. I hold a Bachelor (Hons) in Economics and a MSc in Economics. I obtained a PhD in Economics from the University of Newcastle, Australia in February 2019. Previously, I worked as a teaching and research assistant at the same university since 2007.

My research interests include macroeconomics and macroeconomic policies, modelling in macroeconomics, stock-flow consistent modelling, Post Keynesian economics, monetary economics, financialisaton and financial instability, fiscal and monetary policies, inequality and income distribution, Wage-Led Growth, ecological macroeconomics, labour economics and employment, international political economy.

In my PhD, I have developed a Stock-Flow consistent model to enhance and analyse the macroeconomic and financial instability in context of the 2007–2008 GFC.
