He also initiated our work on competition and gender inequality, co-authored or work on wealth and income inequality, and led our work towards delivering a Recommendation on Competitive Neutrality. He has also led the revision of our Recommendation on Competition Assessment and produced guidance on protecting competition during procurement.

He has a Phd in Economics from the University of East Anglia in Norwich where he was a founding member of the Centre for Competition Policy.
