Personal profile


I was awarded a PhD in Economics from Royal Holloway, University of London, in 2012. Since June 2012 I have been employed at Coventry University. I received an MSc in Economics from the Poznan University of Economics, Poland. My research interests are broadly in economics of armed conflict, economics of terrorism and security, political economy, and more recently branching into regional and urban economics. 

My research incorporates elements of economics and political science, for example I have been working on a study of sensitivity of public opinion to war-related costs (casualty sensitivity). My most recent projects analyse spatio-temporal diffusion patterns in violence against civilians, cybersecurity of critical infrastructure from an economic perspective and the impact of conflict and terrorism on foreign aid allocation, among others.

Vision Statement

My research interests are in the economics of armed conflict and economics of terrorism. My most recent project analyses the impact of terrorism and conflict on foreign aid allocation. Currently I am working on a geo-spatial study of violence against civilian populations in armed conflict as well as bargaining frameworks in war-coalition building.
