John Barrdear
I am a research economist at the Bank of England. I have interests in business cycles, imperfect information, networks, models of credit and, of course, monetary policy.

I obtained my PhD in 2013 from the London School of Economics and Political Science, where my supervisor was Kevin Sheedy. My viva committee was Wouter den Haan and Kris Nimark.

Previous life:
I originally studied Computer Systems Engineering at the University of Queensland, Australia (graduating in 1998), before working as a software developer and business consultant for Mincom, a specialist in Enterprise Application Software (EAS) for asset-intensive industries like mining, utilities, transportation, defence and government. I moved to the United Kingdom in 2002 and decided on a career change shortly thereafter.
