Personal profile

Personal Statement

My research interests are in the economics of devolved finances, and labour markets and inequality.

I have led the Fraser of Allander Institute's work on Fiscal Policy since 2016. I coordinate FAI's annual report on the Scottish budget, and provide regular analysis of the Scottish budget. I was adviser to the Scottish Parliament’s Finance and Constitution Committee between 2016-2021. 

I am currently leading ESRC-funded research into the devolved government's funding frameworks during the Covid-19 pandemic, and supporting the Fiscal Commission Northern Ireland in its deliberations over options for tax devolution to Northern Ireland.

I have published extensively on trends in income inequality and social mobility in Scotland. Between 2017 and 2019 I was a Commissioner on the Scottish Government's Poverty and Inequality Commission. I coordinate a course called 'the economics of inequality' on Strathclyde's Applied Economics MSc.
