MUGShotMy academic research interests are migration, income based welfare schemes and the labour market. 

My MSc thesis reviewing the evidence for a Basic Income scheme’s effect on the UK labour market is published online by the Citizen’s Income Trust.

I have forthcoming paper about the feasibility of an Income Scheme for the UK, to be published by the Adam Smith Institute

I’m also a Superforecaster in the Good Judgement Project. You can read about our project in the Financial Times, NPR and a more detailed writeup of recent activity on my blog

Here are some of my recent other projects:

‘London’s 66,000 guns’, a live talk recorded at Ignite London.

‘The Captain and the Enemy’, a short film about retired Capt. Maurice Seddon and his court battles.

‘How Religion Made Me Homeless’, a short film I made with Nadia Gomos, who told me her amazing story about being victimised by unscrupulous faith healers when she read…

‘Miracles for Sale’, an article about the time I went to a televangelist event for fun and found that up close it was quite the opposite.

‘I went to a Get Rich Quick Scheme Disguised as a Nazi, an article about the time I went to a get rich quick scheme disguised as a Nazi. This one is from a new blogging project I am doing called Social Hypotheses‘ which will have a more social science theme.
