Research interests

1.  International trade - Co-editor of the Journal of International Trade and Economic Development

The Journal of International Trade and Economic Development is a peer-reviewed journal which focuses on international economics, development and, more importantly, the interface between trade and development.  The links between trade and development are critical at a time when both fluctuating commodity prices and trade liberalisation and agreements can radically affect the economies of developing countries.  It is designed to meet the needs of international and development economists, economic historians, applied economists and policy makers.  The international experts who make up the journal's Editorial Board encourage contributions from economists world-wide.
