James joined the TaxPayers' Alliance in September 2016 as part of the research team. As a Policy Analyst, James works under the leadership of Research Director Alex Wild.
James has recently published research on the UK’s tax gap, showing that cracking down on illicit trade could fund a 1 pence cut in the basic rate of income tax. He is also interested in how modern technology and trends are interacting with traditional institutions and ideas.
Before joining the TPA, James ran an educational charity and before that was a Team Leader for a political campaign. He holds an MSc in Public Policy from UCL. He enjoys fruity ciders, classical archaeology and adding to his already over-sized library.
