Research and Teaching Interests

Research themes

Most of my current research is concentrated in the areas of social ontology and the ontology of technology and decision-making under extreme uncertainty. I have also written on explanation in the social sciences, institutional economics, J.M. Keynes and the economics of the Austrian School.

Teaching responsibilities

I teach core microeconomics for the MBA and various MPhil programmes, MPhil Research Methods, and an MBA elective on Philosophy for Business.


I am a former Fellow of the Cambridge-MIT Institute (CMI), where I served as Associate Director of the Professional Practice Programme (2001-2003) and Director of Graduate Programmes (2003-2005). I have also served as Graduate Tutor for the Arts at Girton (1998-2005), as Director of the MBA (2008-2013) and Director of Programmes (2007-2008) at Cambridge Judge Business School, on the Cambridge University Board of Graduate Studies (2003-2008), and on the Executive Committee of the University Careers Syndicate (2008-2011).
