Welcome to my website. I am Senior Lecturer in International Business and Enterprise at the University of Glasgow’s Adam Smith Business School, and Non Resident Fellow at Bruegel. I am also Visiting Professor at the Institute for European Studies at the Université Libre de Bruxelles.
I studied in France, the UK, and Italy. I studied for my undergraduate at the Institut d’Études Politiques (Sciences Po) in Strasbourg (BA Hons), before moving on to the London School of Economics to complete an MSc in International History, and finally to the EUI in Florence to study for my PhD in History. I was then Pinto Postdoctoral Fellow at LSE, before joining the University of Glasgow in 2011.
I have held visiting and research positions at Keio University (2011), Columbia University (2013), and the University of Economics in Prague (2016). I am Jean Monnet Fellow at the EUI’s Robert Schuman Centre for the academic year 2017/2018.
I am editorial board member of the journal Politique européenne, and board member of the International Association of Contemporary History of Europe / Association Internationale d’Histoire Contemporaine de l’Europe. I am also a member of the Centre for Business History in Scotland. I am a Fellow of the UK’s Higher Education Academy.
I am Principal Investigator (PI) of the project EURECON, funded by a €1.5 million Starting Grant of the European Research Council (2017-2022).
I am also one of the PIs of the project the Uses of the Past in International Economic Relations (UPIER) funded €1.2 million grant from the Humanities in the European Research Area (HERA) consortium (2016-2019).
My contributions to the field of international economic history have been in three domains, which are overlapping. These are (a) European monetary cooperation and integration (and specifically the creation of the European Monetary System in the second half of the 1970s, which is the topic of my book A Europe Made of Money), (b) the development of European banking regulation and supervision, and (c) the rise of both global and European economic governance, specifically the European Council created in 1974 and the G7 created in 1975. My research is part of an ongoing process of re-evaluation of the 1970s as a pivotal decade in post-war international economic history.
