Research interests

I am mostly interested in the economics of alcohol, although I have a broad interest in the economics of addiction and addictive behaviours including smoking, drug use, and gambling.

I have a general interest in all areas of Health Economics, as well as Labour Economics, Education Economics and Applied Microeconometrics.
