I am the Director of the Fraser of Allander Institute.
I re-joined the Fraser in May 2016 after 8 ½ years in the Scottish Government – where I was formerly a Senior Economic Adviser and head of the First Minister’s Policy Unit.
I have responsibility for the overall strategy and outputs of the Institute.
Leading the Fraser is a tremendous privilege. Over the last 40 years, the Institute has made an outstanding contribution to helping improve our understanding of the Scottish economy and to informing better policymaking.
Our mix of cutting-edge academic research and close engagement with the business and policy communities is what sets us apart.
We are committed to informing and encouraging public debate through the provision of the highest quality independent advice and analysis.
If you would like to discuss how we can work with your organisation – including through our FAI Membership Scheme – please do not hesitate to get in touch.
