Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in the Department of Economics and Fraser of Allander Institute.   

I have a strong track record of delivering policy oriented outputs covering a wide range of topics. I am very happy to discuss possible collaborations with partners in industry and policy. My expertise span:

- Applied Bayesian Macroeconometrics
- International Macroeconomics and Finance (with a strong interest in emerging markets)
- Economic Statistics

Recent work has explored:

(1) Regional integration in the Asia Pacific and the region's possible decoupling from the US economy - forthcoming in the IMF Economic Review.

(2) The nonlinear effects of shocks to bank capital vulnerability while acting as a Consultant for the European Central Bank.

(3) Subnational socioeconomic statistics, interregional trade data collection and estimation and regional supply and use and input output tables as a Research Associate with the Economic Statistics Centre of Excellence (ESCoE) funded by the UK's Office for National Statistics.

Further information about my research can be found on my website 

Teaching Interests

I have a strong interest in developing new approaches to teaching students how to analyse economic data using appropriate software.  I teach econometrics on the:

  • BA (Hons) in Economics
  • MSc in Economics and Policy of Energy and Climate Change 
  • Scottish Graduate Programme in Economics at the University of Edinburgh

Recently, I have been working on planning and designing group based coursework so that students can develop their data analysis and sofware skills.  I also co-developed a new module on energy finance and forecasting suitable for students with no prior knowledge of data analysis.
