Alastair Langtry

Network Economics

Alastair completed his Bachelor's degree at the University of Cambridge in 2017 and is currently studying for the MPhil in Economic Research which is the foundation year for the PhD.

Alastair has been awarded a 1+3 ESRC studentship which funds both his MPhil and PhD years. The year spent on the MPhil in Economic Research will give him the opportunity to define and refine a research proposal for his PhD dissertation. During this year he will receive training (a) in advanced topics in current economic research in all area of economics, though a variety of compulsory and optional courses and (b) in quantitative methods to the highest level, as used by current economic research. Alastair's research will focus on both theoretical and empirical aspects of network economics.

Shortly after, he started working as an Economist at NIESR (National Institute of Economic and Social Research) where he predominantly worked on improving labour market statistics through the use of microeconometric and machine learning methods before starting his PhD in the autumn of 2019.

Jamie’s main research fields are in microeconometrics, machine learning, and the microeconomics of development. More specifically, his PhD thesis will focus on the role of financial innovation on financial access—namely mobile money—and the impact it has on household welfare in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Strategic Thinking

Darija completed the MPhil in Economic Research at Cambridge in 2018 after graduating from her Bachelor’s degree at the University of St Andrews.

Darija's research interests lie primarily within behavioural game theory, strategic thinking, and experimental economics (both practical application and methodological issues). Recently, I have added network theory to the list of my research interests. As part of the PhD, I want to design and conduct my own experiments using dynamic games (and, in particular, games played on networks) in order to enhance our understanding of how people think and learn in strategic situations.
