"I am an economist at the University of Greenwich working on labour productivity and inequality."

I am a Lecturer in Economics at the Greenwich Business School. My research has always been diverse in both topic and methodology, but my main driver has been to better understand capitalism, the status quo and how to address real-world problems. My PhD research is about labour productivity and functional inequality on a theoretical and empirical level. In addition to my doctoral research, I have extensively worked on wealth inequality, gender and history of economic thought. I have published on social transition mechanisms in Polanyi and Schumpeter (Hager, Heck & Rath 2022) and a feminist interpretation of Baumol’s cost disease concept (Kreimer & Heck 2021). I have also collaborated on research projects on gender labour market segregation alongside Professor Margareta Kreimer and on wealth inequality in Austria (Heck, Kapeller & Wildauer 2020).

I have experience consistently delivering high-quality teaching in Economics. I have delivered seminars in International Economics at King’s College London, led Mathematics for Economics and Research Design modules at the University of Greenwich and taught Applied Econometrics at SOAS, University of London.
As a result of my constant efforts to create an inspiring learning environment for my students, I was nominated for a King’s Education award after my first year of teaching at King’s College London.
