Team: Economy & Finance

Alice joined the Economy and Finance team in 2013 to work on a EU funded project developing the grounds for complementary currencies. Her current research covers the impacts of inequality and financialisation on the economy, as well as on peoples’ lives and work. Most recently she has begun coordinating a project looking into how the UK housing crisis and finance system are intertwined, as well as carrying out research into the role trade unions play in the economy. 

Before joining NEF Alice completed a Joint MA in Contemporary European Philosophy held between the Centre for Research into Modern European Philosophy (CRMEP) at Kingston University and Université Paris-VIII. She formerly worked for Which? magazine in the banking campaigns team and as a researcher for a documentary production company.

Outside of work Alice plays on a women’s football team in south London and is a trustee and organiser for Rethinking Economics, a student-led movement transforming economics education to make it critical and relevant for more people.
