Welcome!

I am an Associate Professor in economics in the Department of Economics at the University of Reading.

My research is, broadly speaking, on applied econometrics, with a particular focus on sport. See my Research page, my Ideas page or my Google Scholar page for more information. My CV is here.

I'm the Director of Postgraduate Research in the Department, and as such, I act as placement co-ordinator. If you have any enquiries about any of our PhD students, please get in touch.

I'm a Scorecasting Economist, working with my colleague Carl Singleton to forecast scorelines for football matches. It's a bit of fun, but it also is providing interesting research offshoots too.

I'm also affiliated with the Programme for Economic Modelling (EMoD) at the Institute for New Economic Thinking at the Oxford Martin School and the Research Program in Forecasting at George Washington University.

I lecture Macroeconomic Principles (EC114), Econometric Methods (EC318), and the Economics of Sport and Games (EC325). See my Teaching page for more information.

Find me blogging mainly here on things vaguely economic, here on an ongoing habit of mine, find me on Twitter here, and also on Flickr here.
