BSc Mathematics (Imperial College London)
MSc Economics (University of Bristol)
PhD Economics (University of Bristol) 


I joined the University of York in 2022 from the Institute for Fiscal Studies, where I was an Associate Director co-leading the Education and Skills group. My main research interests are in labour economics and the economics of education. 



I have led a large programme of research using the Department for Educations' Longitudinal Education Outcomes dataset to look at outcomes from higher education in the UK. See here for a summary of the projects.
