I am a political economist at the University of Oxford specialising in artificial intelligence policy, the political implications of technological shocks, inequality, debt, and polarisation.
I am currently studying the relationship between disruptive digital technology shocks and rates of household indebtedness in the United States as well as the question of 'who can be retrained' in an age of digitally-enabled automation and task substitution. This work is supervised by Ben Ansell and David Rueda.
My previous research looked at the relationship between technological disruption and socio-political views, with a focus on populism, class dealignment, and polarisation. This writing and research has previously been featured in the New York Times, Financial Times, Vox, Politico, Bloomberg, and Jacobin.
In addition to my academic work, I am a Senior Economist at OMFIF—a monetary policy think tank—where I help to drive our AI policy workstream. And I am a consultant at The Brookings Institution and Center for AI Safety. I have also previously interned in President Barack Obama's personal office.
Prior to joining Oxford, I received my MSc in Political Science and Political Economy as a Fulbright Scholar at the London School of Economics. And I received my BA in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics from Brown University.
