- regulatory policy;
- spectrum auctions;
- post cost modelling; and
- applying behavioural insights to a wide range of communications sectors.
During his time working for the regulator of communications services in the UK, Chris led the design of Ofcom’s proposed innovative format for the assignment stage of the upcoming mmWave auction and was a part of the core model-building team which used Python to build a complex model estimating the costs for Royal Mail’s nationwide postal service.

There, he evaluated the cost-effectiveness of certain medical interventions and investigated the economic value of branded pharmaceuticals accruing to manufacturers and the NHS.
