Biography:

I have been a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Economics at the University of Reading since 2018. Before that, I received my PhD from The University of Edinburgh, after a few years working in the Government Economic Service. My research mainly focuses on Macroeconomics and Labour Economics, with particular interests in understanding cyclical fluctuations, wage determination and issues of economic inequality. I also do research in Sports Economics and Prediction Markets, as well as a bit of football forecasting.

  • BSc, London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE)
Areas of Interest:

Macroeconomics; Labour Markets and Wages; Economics of Sport

Research Supervision:

I am interested in work at the intersection of macroeconomcis and labour markets. This could include: how wages are determined, wage inequality, and business cycle fluctuations. This could be theoretical (e.g. models with search frictions) or applied/empirical (e.g. measuring whether wages are sticky, or how much of wage inequality is driven by the differences between firms). I will supervise other applied research so long as it relates to the role of labour markets. I also have a growing interest in Sports Economics and would supervise work in this area. (See my personal website for the latest versions of all my publications and working papers).
