Economics

Personal statement

I joined the Fraser of Allander economic modelling team in June 2016, and am working on the unit's general equilibrium model. I completed my PhD at the University of Dundee, and was fundedĀ as part of the EPSRC-funded project, SUE-REGEN.

Aside from developing Fraser's AMOS model, I have a broaderĀ interest in building economic simulations and computational economics.
