I joined Corpus in 2016, having spent two years in Oxford as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Nuffield College. I received a PhD in Economics from Yale University in 2014, where I worked under the supervision of Peter Phillips and Xiaohong Chen. An Australian by birth, my undergraduate studies in economics and mathematics were undertaken at the University of Sydney.
Research and Teaching
My research is in econometrics, that subfield of economics concerned with the statistical methods used to impose empirical discipline on economic models. I am particularly interested in the development of better inferential procedures for time series data that exhibit either non-linearities or a high degree of persistence, such as commonly arises in empirical macroeconomics and finance.
At Corpus, I currently provide tutorials in Prelims Microeconomics and Quantitative Economics (an introductory econometrics course). In the Economics Department, I am the course convenor for Quantitative Economics, and also deliver lectures for the MPhil programme on instrumental variables, generalised method of moments, and maximum likelihood estimation.
Details of my publications and working papers are available on my personal webpage.
