Originally from United Kingdom
Currently living in United Kingdom

I am an economist with experience in the UK civil service and a former ODI fellow in Mozambique. Following the Barcelona GSE Master's in Data Science, I worked for a year and a half at the OECD, before returning to the UK civil service, where I am currently with the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.

Interview

The Master's in Data Science provided me with tools to conduct economic analysis with cutting-edge data analysis techniques. I really appreciated the possibility in the Master's to explore the topics that we found most interesting, and work on collaborative projects which made clear the practical implications of what we learned. A big plus was also that the teaching staff encourage collaboration over competition, which is particularly nice given the diversity of student backgrounds.
