I am Professor of Competition Policy at the Centre for Competition Policy. I am also a Non-Executive Director at the Financial Conduct Authority. I was previously Chief Economist at the Office of Fair Trading (2001-2013), where I also spent time leading the OFT's Mergers and Competition Policy teams. Before joining the OFT, I was an economic consultant at Frontier Economics (1999-2001) and London Economics (1993-1999).
I have written and presented widely on competition and consumer policy. In my ongoing research, I have a particular interest in the implications for competition and consumer policy of behavioural economics and online markets. I am also developing an online distance-learning MSc in competition policy to be offered to practitioners internationally. I have a DPhil and MPhil in economics from Nuffield College, Oxford. I have been on the Councils of the Royal Economic Society and the Association of Competition Economics and on the advisory panel for the ESRC Centre for Economic Learning and Social Evolution (ELSE).
