Research & Scholarship
I am an applied Industrial Economist, interested in competitive forces in markets. Currently my research focuses on education and cultural markets. In terms of my work on the education sector, I am researching the UK Independent School sector, in light of the fee-setting cartel that operated in the early 2000s. I am also extending my existing research into Business Schools, and in particular MBA degrees. Having previously worked on the UK film industry, I am now extending this work to consider the Chinese film industry, in light of its dramatic growth in recent years.
