About me

My research focuses on the social costs of neoliberalism and the economics of K. William Kapp. (cf. my book The Social Costs of Neoliberalism (2017) and my article on social cost accounting (2021, podcast interview here)

My research on cost theory is grounded in an exploration of the poetic-hermeneutic foundations of economic knowledge (cf. my book series Economics and Humanities (Routledge), my articles on poetic economics, and my co-edited book volume What is Heterodox Economics?).

I am recipient of the 2020 Kapp Prize of the Society for Ecological Economics in Germany (Verein für Ökologische Ökonomie) and the 2009 Helen Potter Award of the Association for Social Economics.


At UWE I teach courses in applied microeconomics, ecological economics, business ethics, and the history of economic thought.

Before joining UWE in 2014 I taught economics as Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Missouri - Kansas City, and as Assistant Professor at Roanoke College, and at Dickinson College. I also held a position as Visiting Scholar at the Department of Economics at Harvard University in 2013 and at the Sorbonne - Paris in 2006. I received my PhD in economics from the University of Bremen in 2007 and my M.A. in Business Administration/Economics (equivalent of Dipl.-Kaufm.) from the University of Technology - Chemnitz in 2004.
