Personal Details



I am an environmental economist and currently hold the post of Senior Fellow in Environmental Economics at the University of East Anglia.

I completed my  BA degree in Economics at Trinity College, Cambridge.  My exposure  to public economics and experiences as a research assistant for Professor Robert Neild fostered my interest in environmental economics and my passion for research. I completed my MSci in Environmental and Resource Economics at UCL and, following this, began my PhD at the University of East Anglia graduating in 2013. 


Research Interests

My research interests include environmental economics, in particular non-market valuation, spatial econometrics, micro-econometrics and modelling individual decision making processes.

PhD Research

My PhD thesis investigates the theoretical and empirical nature of spatial processes in environmental economics.  I am especially interested in the relationships and interactions between models of location choice (hedonic and equilibrium sorting models) and the spatial dimensions of the underlying processes, and applications of these methods to the design and evaluation of policy.
