Peter Lambert is completing his PhD in Economics at the London School of Economics (LSE), funded by the 2018 Commonwealth Scholarship Award. He also works in the Centre for Economic Performance - Growth Research Programme - as an Occasional Research Assistant for Professor John Van Reenen.
Current areas of research include:
- CEP work focuses on using large firm-level datasets to investigate the causes of the so called 'productivity slowdown' during the 21st century. This includes looking at the effects of trade, financial constraints, and produce market competition
- PhD research sits at the intersection of IO and macroeconomics, specifically focusing on new trends in industry and firm dynamics
- Most recent work uses novel unstructured datasets (e.g. text, transaction data) to test theoretical predictions about firms' behaviour
