I am in my fifth year of a PhD at USCís Price School of Public Policy. My advisors are Gary Painter and Adam Rose.

My research has focused on the policy and economics of disasters, particularly environmental and terrorism policy, and the impacts to regional economies and transportation systems.

I have worked on a number of projects at the USC Center for Risk and Economic Analysis of Terrorism Events (CREATE) and co-founded Carbon Retirement, an innovative London-based carbon offsets company.


What are those wiggly lines?!








I was born and raised in Leeds, United Kingdom, completed my undergraduate studies at the London School of Economics and Political Science and a Masterís of Public Policy at the University of Southern California.

Outside of my studies I love spending time with my wonderful wife Lauren and exhausting (and lovely!) 2 year-old daughter Delilah.

I also enjoy playing guitar, swimming, playing and watching association football, and cooking.
