Jamie is a Lecturer of International Relations in the Department of Politics, People and Place.
His research focuses on the International Political Economy of European Capitalism. Specifically, his doctoral research at the University of Nottingham (2013-2017), funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), analysed the origins of, and responses to, the eurozone crisis in Greece and Portugal. He is currently converting this work into a book, which will be published with the RIPE Series in Global Political Economy (Routledge), as well as having had articles published in the European Journal of International Relations and the Journal of Common Market Studies (see 'Key Research Outputs' below). Following his PhD, Jamie was appointed as an Irish Research Council Postdoctoral Fellow in European Integration and Employment Relations at University College Dublin (2017-2018). There, he focused on how the EU's new economic governance regime is re-shaping supranational employment relations and social policy, as well as examining trade union responses to these developments.
In his teaching practice, Jamie attempts to foster an inclusive and pluralistic learning environment, whereby students are encouraged to critically engage with a diverse range of key topics and debates across the fields of International Relations and International Political Economy. He is currently the module leader for the first year 'Introduction to Globalisation' (POPP1402), which includes a focus on the changing historical and contemporary contours of global trade, finance and economic production, as well as many other topics. Further, Jamie is interested in supervising enthusiastic doctoral students on any topic across his areas of research interests/expertise (see below). Please feel free to get in touch with him if you have a prospective proposal you would like to discuss in more detail.
