I am Chief Economist and Deputy Chief Executive of the Resolution Foundation, and also Professor of Economics at the University of Essex, where I work at the Institute for Social and Economic Research (ISER) and am a co-Investigator of the ESRC-funded Research Centre on Micro-Social Change, or MiSoC.


I am a Research Fellow of the Institute for Fiscal Studies, where I worked for 11 years, an IZA Research Fellow, and a Research Affiliate of the Uppsala Center for Fiscal Studies.

My first book – called What Do We Know And What Should We Do About Inequality? – came out in summer 2019. Read about it here.

My home page at The Resolution Foundation is here. A list of my academic work is here, and other pages contain more detail about certain areas of my research: on inequality, tax credits and families, Universal Credit, and childcare.

I know nearly nothing about cars, and so I am definitely not this Mike Brewer, nor this one, nor this one, etc.
