About

I'm currently an Economics of Education doctoral candidate in the Department of Quantitative Social Science at the Institute of Education, University of London. My PhD supervisors are Prof. Lorraine Dearden (IFS) and Prof. John Micklewright (IoE).

I will be joining the National Institute of Economic and Social Research (NIESR) as a Research Officer in September. I'm currently seeking new research opportunities in the fields of education, training and skills; labour markets; and policy evaluation. You can read my current CV here.
