Economics (2020 cohort)

My interests are in network theory and algorithmic links to the spread of information through markets, particularly via online platform markets, and the speed of adoption for new technology products and how marketing influence can spread between individual agents and consumer groups.

After specialising in mathematical economics during my undergraduate degree at the University of Warwick, I have spent the last year working as a Research Analyst at Compass Lexecon. After working on cartel and merger cases across several geographies, I am now returning to academia in pursuit of incorporating a data orientated slant on the core economic theory studies. During my undergraduate degree I received awards for both my short research thesis where I studied links between taxation and happiness in the UK, and for overall degree performance where I achieved the highest mark across the department.
