James Atkins

Economics PhD Candidate, Northwestern University

I am a PhD candidate in Economics at Northwestern University.

I am interested in industrial organisation, especially in the area of auctions and digital markets, and the use of computational methods in economics.

I am a graduate of Bocconi University, where I studied for a master's degree in Economic and Social Sciences. I gained my bachelor's degree, also in Economics, from the University of Cambridge. Between my bachelor's and master's, I worked at a London-based economic consultancy where I supported bidders and auctioneers in high-value auctions.
