Current Research

Richard's main research interests are the causes and consequences of technological change. Included within this are the effects on productivity at the firm level and on international trade. The types of technological change include ICT/internet and containerization. Questions on the firm level adjustment to globalisation have mostly been about the determinants and consequences of exporting. This work has formed the basis for his collaborations and advisory work with UKTI, the UK's exports promotion agency.

A second strand of his research has considered the effects of fiscal policy. This has included analysis at the macro (looking at economic growth) and micro level (firm level productivity and switching into self-employment).
