Willing to supervise doctoral students

I welcome enquiries from potential PhD students who are interested in issues with regard to regional economic development, skills, future of work, labour markets, new working spaces, and place-based industrial strategy, Artificial Intelligence.

I am particularly interested in proposals that aim to uncover new insights in these areas through empirical investigation (via quantitative approaches), aiming to provide lessons for both industrial and public policy.
