Sheffield University Management School
Anthony is an economic data scientist and his work involves using large panel data sets for individuals, firms, cities and regions. Using such data Anthony primarily undertakes efficiency and productivity analysis, and the spatial analysis of spillovers.
Prior to joining the Management School in March 2020, Anthony was a senior lecturer in economics at Loughborough University.
Since February 2017 he has also been a retained academic associate at the London economic consultancy Economic Insight.
- Research interests
Anthony’s research expertise is in three fields:
- Applied Microeconometrics (spatial econometrics; production econometrics, e.g., stochastic frontier analysis; panel data analysis; treatment effects/natural experiment analysis);
- Applied Microeconomics (efficiency and production economics; spatial economics);
- Banking and Finance (performance measurement; competition; network analysis).
