I joined ScHARR (HEDS) as a Research Associate in July 2018, working within the Sheffield Alcohol Research Group. I am currently in the write-up stage of my PhD in Health Economics at Lancaster University, where my thesis analyses behaviours surrounding alcohol consumption and related risky behaviours.

Research interests

• The economics and modelling of alcohol consumption and alcohol taxation.
• Microeconomics and public policy – research in labour, education, health and personnel economics.
• Applied Microeconometrics and behavioural economics.

Current projects

I currently work on Syntax project: Integrated evidence synthesis for joint appraisal of tobacco and alcohol tax interventions for harm reduction in the UK. The aim is to investigate how tobacco and alcohol taxation can be changed to improve health for all.
