Interests: the economics of education

I am currently in my second year of an Economics PhD focusing on evaluations of education policy in England and Wales, supervised by Professor Birgitta Rabe and Dr Laura Fumagalli. Prior to this I taught in UK state schools for five years. I hold a master's in International Education Policy from Harvard Graduate School of Education and a BA from the University of Oxford.
