Hattie Slater joined CEPA as an economist in October 2021. Since joining, she has worked on projects in the energy, transport and global health sectors.
Hattie graduated from the London School of Economics (LSE) in 2021 and holds a degree in MSc (Distinction) Environmental Economics and Climate Change. During her studies, she learned about a variety of policy tools to achieve lower emissions, such as carbon taxes and emission trading schemes, as well as different governance approaches to achieve national environmental targets of net zero. In her postgraduate dissertation, Hattie investigated whether there is a relationship between nitrogen dioxide levels and obesity in school aged children in London. This involved combining air pollution data from DEFRA with National Child Measurement Programme data in STATA and running a combined fixed effects regression model.
She also holds a BSc (First Class) in Economics from the University of Bristol. Throughout her education, Hattie has gained experience using econometrics and STATA, as well as qualitative skills such as the use of cost benefit analysis and project appraisal.
