Hi, I am a senior lecturer in economics at Queen's University Belfast.

My research studies how to allocate scarce resources fairly and efficiently, both theoretically and using data. Applications of my research include the design of algorithms to assign pupils to schools or to divide land among countries.

I have published in Games and Economic Behavior, the Journal of Mathematical Economics, Social Choice and Welfare, Economics Letters and Mathematical Social Sciences. My research has been covered by The Economist, the Financial Times, the MIT Technology Review, BBC's Thinking Allowed and Forbes.  I am/have been on the program committee for the 2022 Matching in Practice Workshop and the 2023 Conference on Economics and Computation.

I obtained my PhD from the University of Glasgow in 2017 under the supervision of Hervé Moulin.
