Alex is an economist at the University of Oxford. A lot of his research focuses on "matching markets". Recently, he has co-authored a number of papers on the design of systems to match refugees incorporating the preferences of refugees and the priorities of countries and local areas. He is working with governments in order to implement these matching systems. His work has turned into a public policy project, called Refugees' Say.
