MA, M.Phil, DPhil

I have been Macpherson Fellow and Tutor in Economics at Oriel since October 2006. 

Research interests

My research addresses questions in applied macroeconomics. I have written papers on (i) the transmission of monetary policy shocks in an open economy setting; (ii) the impact of openness to trade on key features of the inflation process such as inflation volatility, the terms of the output-inflation trade-off and the probability of inflation upturns; (iii) the links between labour market institutions and inflation performance and (iv) the modelling of price and wage data using co-integrated VAR models. Further details concerning my teaching and research are available via my departmental webpage.
