Welcome to my website.
I am a reader in economics at the University of York, where I have worked since 2011. Before that I spent 11 very happy years at the University of Bristol following my PhD taken at the University of Exeter.
My research is predominantly in the broad field of quantitative political economics. I lead the research cluster in political economy in the Department of Economics. I am also Managing Editor and Editor-In-Chief of the Bulletin of Economic Research.
Outside of academia I get overly animated both as competitive dad and as FA level 1 coach for Wheldrake Junior Football Club. I also play the piano quite badly and play chess for the Eagle and Child,
