Teaching & Admin

I am Associate Head of Department (Resources). (I try to persuade people to do admin jobs they'd rather not do and I make sure the teaching across our various degrees is covered. I sit on committees.)

I am Group Chair of the Economics Group at Nuffield College. (I sit on other committees.)

I supervise MPhil and DPhil theses and teach Advanced Microeconomics and Advanced Empirical Research Methods to students on the MPhil and M/DPhil in Economics, and Introduction to Probability & Statistics to undergraduate students reading PPE, EM and HECO.
