Simon Burgess

Welcome to my homepage. I am a Professor of Economics in the Department of Economics , University of Bristol . I was the Director of The Centre for Market and Public Organisation, CMPO 2004 - 2015 and also the Director of The Centre for Understanding Behaviour Change, CUBeC 2010 - 2014.

I am also a Visiting Professor at LSE through CASE , and a Research Fellow at Centre for Economic Policy Research and Institute for the Study of Labor.

Despite all these affiliations, there's only one boss I listen to.

I am a labour economist. My current research interests are in the economics of education, including market-based education reforms such as school performance tables, school accountability, choice and competition, admissions and unequal access to high-performing schools. I also work on ethnic segregation in schools, and the educational performance of minority students.

Previously I have worked on the analysis of poverty and household income dynamics, incentives in organisations, and employment and unemployment dynamics, and a few other topics.
