BackgroundMy academic background is mainly as an empirical labour economist. I held academic posts at Newcastle and Durham before taking up the Jaffrey Chair of Political Economy at the University of Aberdeen which I held until 2016 when I retired and was made Emeritus. In the latter part of my formal career I developed an interest in economic history, and in particular the labour contracts of lead miners in Allendale and the Northern Pennines. I am now continuing to conduct research on the labour market of metal miners in the 18th and 19th centuries, and have an interest in how academic work can inform and be informed by Industrial Heritage and Industrial Archaeology.
