Ben Davies Blog Research Vita

Hi, I’m Ben.

I’m a research analyst at Motu, an economic research institute in Wellington, New Zealand. At Motu I work with Adam Jaffe and Dave MarĂ© on a range of projects that combine economics with network science.

I joined Motu after completing a BSc(Hons) in economics and mathematics at the University of Canterbury. I won the Sir Frank Holmes Prize for being New Zealand’s top undergraduate economics student.

I enjoy writing as a way to organise and clarify my thoughts. I publish some of my writing on my blog. Some of my favorite blog posts include:

I spend the rest of my leisure time reading, running, and playing guitar.
