I currently hold the position of Lecturer in Economics at the School of Economics, University of East Anglia. I completed my PhD studies at the University of Surrey in 2016, having transferred in 2013 after completing two years at the University of Warwick. I am also currently working as a part-time Consultant on academic and commercial projects at Now-Casting Economics.

My current research focusses on the econometrics of forecasting, factor models and big data methods in general. I am interested in applied econometrics, particularly nowcasting macroeconomic variables, and topics in energy and environmental economics.

Before my PhD I studied at the University of Warwick, graduating in 2011 with an MSc in Economics with Distinction supported by a fully-funded 1+3 ESRC scholarship which continued into the PhD program. Prior to Warwick I was educated at the University of Bath, graduating in 2010 with a BSc in Economics with First Class Honours and winning the Sandford Prize, the Neil Farmery Prize and the Caroline Prize for academic performance and final year dissertation.
