About

unnamedI live in London and I am a Reader in Political Economy at Goldsmiths, University of London, where I am also Co-Director of the Political Economy Research Centre. For more on my academic work, see my page at Academia.edu or Google Scholar. Here is my previous blog, Potlatch.

My work focuses on the history of ideas and how expert knowledge shapes politics and society today. Particular interests are in neoliberalism, the science of happiness, and the present crisis of expertise. I’ve written for The Guardian, The New Statesman, London Review of Books, New Left Review, openDemocracy, The New York Times and The Atlantic.
