My research focuses on the causes and consequences of technological change. Included within this are the effects on productivity at the firm level and on international trade. The types of technological change include digital technologies such as cloud. Questions on the firm level have included adjustment to globalisation and have mostly been about the determinants and consequences of exporting and FDI.

This work has formed the basis for his collaborations and advisory work with the UK government and I have been asked to provide expert evidence to the House of Commons and House of Lords.

I am the lead for the Digitisation and Technology theme for the ESRC Centre on Inclusive Trade Policy (CITP). I am part of a ESRC hub (PROPEL) that is looking to boost productivity – and wellbeing – through supporting the growth of better workplaces in the UK

A second strand of research has considered the effects of fiscal policy. This has included analysis at the macro (looking at economic growth) and micro level (firm level productivity). I have worked on projects with the European Commission and the OECD on such projects.

I am an external fellow of GEP and CESIfo. My working papers can be found on REPEC as can various rankings of me. I am also on Linkedin.

I am a winner of the Lord Dearing Prize for Excellence in Teaching and Learning.
