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.

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. Outside of academia, I have presented nowcasting in a policymaking setting to the economics team at NHS Improvement. My nowcasting research has also led to consultancy work at Now-Casting Economics in London, where I recently collaborated on academic and commercial projects.

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.
