 DCC Welcome to my home page.  I am a DPhil (PhD) student in economics at the University of Oxford.  My research interests include maternal and child health and education, fertility and family size, and applied microeconometrics.   My research often focuses on and how people optimise their behaviour subject to the opportunities and restrictions imposed by health and contraceptive policies and technologies, and on how they might behave given developments in these areas.  I am also very interested in innovation, the development of open source knowledge, and in open source software development.  For publications and work in progress, see the research section of this site.

All source code for software components and to reproduce econometric analysis, and links to all data sources consulted are made available on the computation section of this site.  I endorse open data and open code in economics, for details see the Open Economics tab of this site.  All code on this site is released under a GNU copyleft licence, meaning it is free for you to change and circulate.  All sole authored writing to which I hold copyright is released under the Creative Commons.
