Personal profile

Research interests

Luke is interested in:

  • social protection and welfare policy, in particular basic income
  • comparative public policy analysis
  • policy evaluation methods
  • microsimulation
  • political economy of trade and investment policy

Luke is the main researcher on the IPR’s basic income research project. His role involves carrying out quantitative analysis on microsimulation data, situating growing interest in basic income in existing theoretical literature, liaising with collaborators on joint outputs, and disseminating findings to a variety of audiences.

Luke joined the IPR in May 2016, having recently completed a doctorate at the University of Bath’s Department of Social and Policy Science. Luke’s PhD thesis involved an empirical evaluation of the impacts of trade and industrial policy reform, in the context of multilateral liberalisation, incorporating panel data analysis and a series of comparative case studies. Luke also holds an MSc in International Policy Analysis (University of Bath) and a BA in Economics and Politics (University of Exeter).

Prior to his appointment at the IPR, and alongside his PhD, Luke lectured in social policy and development studies at the University of Bath and Bath Spa University, and worked as a distance learning tutor at the School of Oriental and African Studies at the University of London. Luke is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA).
