Born and raised in the middle of the UK, I studied for my first economics degree at the University of Durham. Following this I joined the Civil Service on the Faststream programme. I was placed at the Department for Work and Pensions and worked there until the summer of 2012 when I joined Monitor, the sector regulator for health services in England. The focus of my work at both DWP and Monitor has been on ex-ante evaluation of policy change, or impact assessment.
After two years I have also recently completed a part-time MSc degree at Birkbeck college, also in economics. The subject of my dissertation was how new data on investment in intangible assets can explain growth in total factor productivity and contribute to the debate about the most appropriate theoretical model of endogeneous growth.
I am married and live in east London. In my spare time I enjoy making music, mainly on my double bass, running and cooking.
