Anja Crusius
Anna Hehenberger Hi, I am Anna, 26 years old, based in Vienna and radically heterodox. Before I started working as economist for a newly founded social-liberal think tank in Vienna, I had the pleasure to enjoy a strong heterodox economics education at Kingston University, London. The Exploring Economics project is important in order to bring structure and overview to the vast space of material on economics far beyond the orthodox theory and methodology, and I am happy to contribute in building and fostering a diverse learning and growing space for all of whom are interested! My specific topics of interest lie in regional and rural development, political economy, social reproduction theory & intersectionality, and in the political economy of food regimes.

Jakob Nitschke I am a MA Political Economy student at Kingston University
Jakob Steffen Jakob Steffen was born in 1981 and is an economist and political scientist by training, specialising in monetary/general macroeconomics and comparative government, respectively. In terms of economic thought, he has become an ardent (though not blinkered) Postkeynesian, emphasising the distributional aspects of both economic policy and institutions, such as money. He is a professional politico-economic risk analyst with his own research firm J.S. Research KG, advising SME on the special risks of their global activities and giving lectures/presentations on the matter. In his free time, he is a keen fencer and avid player of board games.
Jakob Zwirnmann I am a student of energy economics with a specific interest in ecological economics and political economy.
James Lubwa I am from Kampala, Uganda. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Quantitative Economics from Makerere University.
Jan Schulz I am a PhD student at the University of Bamberg in Germany and also a co-founder of the Pluralist Economics working group there. In my research, I am very much interested in what interdisciplinary approaches can add to the often too narrow perspective of economics, especially regarding network theory, distributional theory and agent-based models. Under this umbrella of complexity economics, I am looking into such diverse phenomena as inequality and inequality perceptions, industrial organization and business cycle fluctuations. I learned much from the material at EE in the past and use it regularly in my teaching which is why I am very glad to have the opportunity to now contribute to this great and diverse body of knowledge!

João Pedro Braga Brazilian trying to make sense of the political chaos back at home. Currently a student at the Master on Economic Policies for the Global Transition (EPOG+) at HWR Berlin, University of Witwatersrand and Université Paris XIII. Eager to make economics more inclusive through rethinking, exploring and transforming it.
Johanna Biedermann Recently graduated from the University of Barcelona with a degree in 'Economic History', after a Bachelor in 'Economic and Social History' and 'Spanish Studies' from the University of Göttingen. Understanding the historical pathway that the science of 'Economics' has made and viewing the effects of this trajectory on reality, in different regions and times, is crucially contributing to solving current issues. Especially examining specific companies, models and ideas on why and how they were successful (or not) should be an essential part of every economic programme.

Julia Kaff During my study of sociology in Vienna, I have already dealt with multiple approaches of economics. I am very interested in continuing my education in this area. I am preparing my dissertation project which will deal with socio-economic problems.
Kasturi Kandalam I have a BA in Economics (Hons) from Azim Premji University (APU). My minor was Media, Society, and Development. I am fluent in English, Telugu, Hindi, and German. Economics as a subject is intellectually fascinating and challenging. Dynamically combining complex economic theories and ideas and presenting them in an accessible form is what I want to pursue. Exploring Economics matches my interest here. As a part of the Economics course in APU, I chose ‘Political Economy’ ‘Development Economics’, ‘Econometric methods’, ‘Indian Economy’, ‘Economic Philosophy and Reasoning’ and ‘Labour Economics’. These courses have trained me towards comprehending economic problems with logical rigor without losing sight of history, politics, institutions and most importantly, people. This also trained me towards understanding and presenting needful and impactful research. Being interested in issues of inequality, unemployment, jobless growth, the role of the state in development, gender and production relations, this platform will help me achieve this because of its diversity in research presented and the team itself. I wish to become part of the Editorial team with Level B of engagement.
Kristin Dilani Nadarajah I am from Norway and I have a BSc in Economics from University of York, and about to start my master's degree this fall in economics with the EPOG joint masters program. Last year I also took a course in History of Economic Thought in Mexico. I am currently enrolled in a one-year course in Media Studies at the University of Oslo. Outside university, I am active in a Norwegian environmental and development organisation, where I contribute to increasing the competence in alternative economics, both within the organisation and towards the public.

Seun Adeyemo I am a Nigerian, of the Yoruba tribe, my parents are from Osun state. I lived most of my years in Lagos state. I studied Economics at the University of Lagos (UNILAG), Nigeria (B.Sc). I am motivated to join the Exploring Economics Editorial Team because of the may resources that I have access to and would love to share with the global audience. I believe there is a lot of knowledge that needs to be shared and discoveries that need to be made in the field of economics, and here is an opportunity to join a global community of editors with similar interests to help build a better economics education especially for the benefit of everyone.
