James Reade is an applied econometrician, addressing interesting and open issues from the data perspective. There are three main areas of his research. First, understanding and developing econometric tools to better understand economic data. Secondly, attempting to use novel and interesting datasets from microeconomic phenomena such as sporting and political events to learn more about economic behaviour. Thirdly, attempting to better understand macroeconomic events through a rigorous use of macroeconomic data.
He received his DPhil from the University of Oxford in 2007 under the supervision of Prof. Sir David F. Hendry before undertaking a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship also at the University of Oxford. In 2009 he arrived at the University of Birmingham.
