Postgraduate supervision

I am interested in supervising research in line with my areas of interest.


I joined the Department of Economics at the University of Reading in September 2018. My research interests are in applied economics, media economics and empirical finance. I am particularly interested in the implications of big data/big data analytics for economic research as well as macroeconomic measurement and policies. My research has been covered in a number of media outlets including The Guardian, BBC, The Times and The Economist among others.
