I am an economist with interests in econometrics and data science; and the economics of technology, creativity, innovation and growth. I am presently working as a Data Scientist in the Development Data Group of the Chief Economist’s Vice Presidency (and previously in the Innovation Labs) at the World Bank. I was previously a Research Fellow at Nesta. My background combines economics, statistics and computer science.

I completed my doctoral research in the Department of Economics at the University of Oxford. My research was in time series econometrics, but I am interested in economics and statistics more broadly, and indeed problems of all kinds that involve using data to illuminate the world.

This article in the NYT gives a friendly background to the work I’ve been doing at the World Bank.
