I have 18 years working as an applied economist in public policy in a range of organisations. In my career I have worked on skills policy, local economic development, worklessness, state and private pensions policy, Industrial Strategy and business policy. Recently, I was part of the team that developed the new Civil Service Diversity and Inclusion Strategy, representing Christians in Government. I have a Master’s degree in Economics from Leeds University and I sit on their Economics Curriculum Board. I have a keen interest in a range of other disciplines such as data science, behavioural science, philosophy and psychology.
