Economics is a social science since it uses scientific methods to build theories and statistical evidence that can help explain the behaviour of individuals, groups and organisations. I am an empirical microeconomist with research interests that focuses mainly on the interplay between family behaviour and public policy. My research uses a wide range of methods, from applied theory and structural estimation, through to field experiments and policy-evaluation methods.
