Andrew Preston

I am a PhD student in economics at University College London (UCL). Prior to this, I was an economist at Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) in London, working in the Centre for Data Exploitation.

My research interests within the field of macroeconomics include macro-finance, monetary economics and the interaction between news coverage and the economy.

I have a substack newsletter here where I write about a range of topics in economics, finance and sport.
