Nina is a doctoral researcher in the field of international political economy, with a focus on the role of economic ideas under capitalism. Her research looks at free market and (neo)liberal ideas in crisis contexts, exploring how these evolved during the Covid-19 pandemic and the consequent inflationary period. She takes a qualitative approach to examining the networks that form, influence, and disseminate neoliberal knowledge.

Nina is a co-convenor of the SPERI Doctoral Research Network, working to bring together post- graduate researchers from various disciplines at the university through events and collaboration.
