I am a Kiwi who lives in London. I work as an Economist for Deutsche Bank where I write research on a range of macroeconomic topics that affect the European Central Bank and the countries of the Euro Area.

I completed my Ph.D. in economics at the University of Chicago where my thesis focuses on productivity knowledge spillovers and labour mobility. Before this, I worked at the Reserve Bank of New Zealand.
