Formerly Professor of Education at the University of Cambridge, I am the Director of the Leverhulme Trust and an economist of education.
I’m an economist of education, which means I apply economic principles to the study of education. I do lots of work on trying to understand the effectiveness of different education systems, of understanding the causes of inequality in our education systems, and I try to come up with practical solutions to how we can narrow these inequalities.
