I joined Brunel in December 2019. My research interests are in applied microeconomic theory. Recently, my research has focussed on various issues in taxation and tax administration. I am a Research Fellow at the Tax Administration Research Centre and a member of CESifo Research Network. Before Brunel I held positions at Durham, Reading, and Exeter. My previous academic career was in theoretical physics.
