I am Arup's Chief Economist. My professional expertise is in advising clients how to best deliver regeneration and transport projects to meet their economic, financial and wider strategic aims. I have more than 25 years of policy, government and consultancy experience. Much of this has been gained from working on London transport and infrastructure projects.
I have been advising clients on the financing and funding options relating to delivery of a range of infrastructure projects in the UK and internationally. These have included: taxes, user charges, private finance models, transport-led development and value capture mechanisms.
I have written extensively on policy and funding challenges facing London and other British cities. I am a Non-Executive Chair at BEE Midtown, a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, a member of the Design South East review panel and was a visiting lecturer at the London School of Economics & Political Science. I am an independent advisor to the Mayor of London’s infrastructure delivery board. I gave evidence to the Treasury Select Committee’s inquiry into the Autumn Statement and its expenditure proposals for infrastructure.
