APPLIED ECONOMIC RESEARCH & MODELLING
We offer tailored economic research and quantitative analysis using a broad toolset of micro- and macroeconomic frameworks. From impact measurement over forecasting to developing fully-fledged economic models, our comprehensive research portfolio creates value for clients by strengthening decision-making, quantifying economic and social outcomes, and deriving policy recommendations. Our diverse team of Oxford-trained economists has extensive experience across a variety of sectors including labour markets, migration, health, gender, and trade. The team’s research has been published in academic journals, as policy papers in international organisations, and as part of national government strategies.
DATA SCIENCE & STATISTICS
Working at the intersection of policy, data science, and economics, we also offer a portfolio of services related to machine learning, econometrics, and statistical analysis. These include the collection, evaluation, and visualisation of quantitative and qualitative data, as well as the development of specialised learning algorithms for data analytics and representation. With text data being a major focus of our work, we help clients to make qualitative information accessible as a data source for quantitative analysis and visualisation. Examples include comparative topic analyses of survey questions, sentiment analyses of interview data, and uncertainty indices for specific policies and markets.

In combining qualitative and quantitative information with a rigorous analytical framework, we provide a unique perspective for risk assessments, forecasting, and impact estimation.
