He was previously a Leverhulme funded Early Career Research Fellow at Birmingham Law School (to 2014), a PhD candidate at Downing College, Cambridge (to 2011) and a Tax Consultant for PricewaterhouseCoopers in Cambridge, Birmingham and London (to 2008). His research interests centre on the interactions between taxation, public finance and public law, especially as they play out over extended periods of time. In his recent work he has examined systematic inconsistencies in the application of taxing statutes, and has also tried to understand the relative absence of robust legal and historical analysis within tax reform processes.
