Ed Pemberton is a doctoral researcher in the Politics department whose work focuses on political economy. He is completing an ESRC funded PhD that studies the impact that globalisation has had on inequality within the UK. His work uses an everyday international political economy perspective to investigate how individuals and regions have been adversely incorporated into global networks of production, trade and finance. Ed has been involved with the campaign to reform the teaching of economics, both as a student at Sheffield University and as a founding trustee of the educational charity Rethinking Economics. Prior to returning to full-time education, he worked as a sustainability consultant to the construction industry.
