I joined Leeds University Business School as a DIGIT Research Fellow in February 2020 where I am researching on the impact of technology on employment and organisational performance.

I am contributing towards the centre’s quantitative research agenda including analysis of secondary datasets and the Employer’s Digital Practices at Work Survey.

Prior to joining Digit, I worked as Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Oxford Department of International Development, University of Oxford. I earned my PhD in Health Economics from the University of Manchester and also have an MSc in Economics from the University of Bristol.
