Areas of interest

My research mainly focuses on Macroeconomics and Labour Economics, with interests in understanding cyclical fluctuations, wage determination and issues of economic inequality. I also do research in Sports Economics and Prediction Markets.

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 or sports. (See my personal website for the latest versions of all my publications and working papers).


I joined the University of Reading in 2018. Before that, I received my PhD from The University of Edinburgh, after a few years working in the Government Economic Service.
