I am originally from Sheffield, in the United Kingdom, and have previously lived in Oxford, London, Boston, Washington DC, and New Delhi. I currently live in the Amherst area with my wife, Rafaela, and two children, Esten and Leo.

I received my PhD in Strategy & Entrepreneurship from London Business School. I also hold a Bachelors degree from the University of Oxford and Masters' degrees from University College London and Harvard University.

Prior to my doctoral studies, I worked on health policy for the British Government, leading projects on human capital policies, and at the Brookings Institution in Washington DC.

I used to have a range of hobbies, but now that I have two toddlers my favourite activity is catching up on sleep.
