My research interests are in the history of economic journalism and the uses of economics in the public sphere. I have published research articles in the journals History of Political Economy, Science in Context, Journal of the History of Economic Thought, Journal of the History of the Behavioral Sciences, and Minerva. I post my research work and a few other writings on my website. I concluded my PhD from the London School of Economics in 2006 on the origins of dissenting economics in North America, the thesis is forthcoming as a book. I have been an organizer of the Conference on the History of Recent Economics (HISRECO) since 2007, and was a co-organizer of the 2010 meetings of the European Society for the History of Economic Thought (ESHET). I am currently the principal investigator a European Research Council funded project on the history and sociology of economic journalism, titled “Economics in the Public Sphere”. I am based at the Department of History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Cambridge.
