Research Hub

I've been a researcher at policy institutions throughout my career as I like to get inspired by current policy debates. I took a position as research advisor in the newly created Research Hub in 2016 as I was attracted to the renewed focus on research at the Bank of England. My job involves doing research and contribute to building a strong research environment in the Bank. I like that the Bank provides career tracks specifically designed for researchers. 

The Bank has a very dynamic research community and provides an inspiring environment for researchers interested in research relevant to the Bank’s core operations. Being located in London is an added bonus as it allows for ample interaction with researchers in academia. Staff is very collaborative and friendly and there is a lot of diversity. There is ample scope for debate and for thinking outside the box.
