I am Professor of Economics at the University of Birmingham, teaching MSc International Macro, and researching on optimal monetary policy and business cycles.
I was Reader in Economics at Bristol for 2 years.
Before that I worked at the Bank of England for 20 years in the directorate devoted to monetary policy. At the BoE I had a variety of roles, including managing the forecast, leading the analysis on the Bank’s Quantitative Easing team, and, latterly, heading a team doing research into applied macro, and delivering advice on monetary strategy and monetary frameworks. I left as a Senior Advisor at Head of Division level.
I am a member of Centre for Macroeconomics hosted by the LSE, and supported by UCL, the Bank of England, and others.
I have been an occasional consultant at the Norges Bank; for Oxford Economics; and for the GLG expert network group, working with a range of clients in the asset management industry, on topics like Scoxit, Brexit and the challenges facing the BoE and the Fed.
If you are looking for someone to help with a project that overlaps with my expertise, drop me a line.
I would also consider delivering courses or technical assistance on macro, monetary macro, empirical macro, monetary framework design and implementation.
