Biography

David joined CCP in 2013 after completing a PhD in Economics at the University of Essex. David's research comprises three core themes: (i) consumer behaviour in regulated markets, (ii) affordability and distributional issues in liberalised markets, and (iii) considering the institutions of the 'Regulatory State'. David has mainly explored these themes through the prism of the UK energy market.

David has worked closely with Catherine Waddams on a range of projects. In particular, he performed extensive econometric analysis for a project investigating switching between energy suppliers by consumers at a collective switch event known as 'The Big Switch'. He also performed all of the data analysis for a research project looking at the affordability utility services across the EU for the Centre on Regulation in Europe (CERRE). David is currently focussed on leading two research packages in the UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC) funded project 'Equity and Justice in Energy Markets'.

David also co-ordinates CCP's responses to public consultations and invitations to tender. He has jointly written 13 consultation responses and has been part of CCP teams meeting with senior decision makers at Ofgem, Ofwat, the Competition and Markets Authority, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, the Department for Energy and Climate Change and the European Commission's DG Ener.

Prior to joining CCP David also gained experience of teaching at the undergraduate level. At the University of Essex this included being lecturer for the 3rd year module 'Theory of Monopoly and Regulation' and the 2nd year module 'Economics of Organisational Management'.
