I am a final year PhD economics student, and in receipt of an ESRC 1+3 studentship.
Thesis: "Three Essays in the Economics of Higher Education"
I have been a teaching assistant in the department since Autumn 2013, teaching on a wide range of core and optional undergraduate modules.
Since January 2015, I have been the course coordinator for the core 3rd year module ECNU312: Advanced Macroeconomics. I will deliver this module again in January 2018. I will also be the course coordinator for ECNU3AX: Applied Economics I in September 2017.
My primary research interest is in the economics of higher education. Specifically, I am interested in the accessibility of higher education, policy evaluation, and determinants of subject choice.
I am particularly interested in using policy evaluation methods - such as Regression Discontinuity Design (RDD), Difference-in-Differences (DD) and Propensity Score Matching (PSM) - to analyse both education and labour market policies.
I retain a seconday interest in the economics of languages, and the job market effects of bilingual schooling.
