Dr Jennifer Churchill

Lecturer in Economics


I am a Lecturer in Economics and a member of the Political Economy Research Group (PERG). I have been teaching at Kingston since 2015, and previously worked as Teaching Fellow at SOAS, University of London.

My research interests are Post Keynesian macroeconomics, financialisation, institutional investors (particularly pension funds) and capital markets, social policy, gender and the philosophy of economics. I have worked professionally on pension reform legislation in the UK, and served as a trustee on the Local Government Pension Fund, the largest Defined Benefit scheme in the UK. I hold a Certificate in Retirement Income Provision. I have worked across a broad spectrum of social policy areas in both influencing and decision-making roles.

Areas of specialism

  • Post Keynesian Macroeconomics
  • Pension funds and capital markets
  • Social policy
  • Theory of the Welfare State
  • Feminist Economics
  • Philosophy of Economics


  • PhD, Economics (SOAS, University of London)
  • MSc Finance and Development (SOAS, University of London)
  • Graduate Diploma in Economics (SOAS, University of London)
  • BA Philosophy (UCL)


I am currently working on two pension related projects. The first relates to the demand/supply imbalance in Peruvian and Columbian capital markets due to pension fund behaviour. The second relates to the gendered effect of pension reforms in the European Union.
