#DataImpactFellows doing great work

Our Data Impact Fellows are a fantastic group of early career researchers who are out to change the world. We’re very proud of the research they’re doing and the impact they are already having.

Here’s a quick rundown of what a few of them have been up to.


Oliver Exton @oliver_exton has been working with Dr Meredith Crowley looking at the UK’s future trade relationship with the EU as the Brexit negotiations continue. Their briefing on Customs is section 5 in The Brexit White Paper: what it must address, a paper produced by organisation The UK in a Changing Europe.

This has received coverage from The Times (paywall).

Esmeralda Bon, @EsmeraldaVBon has, with Professor Cees van der Eijk,  briefed the Committee on Standards in Public Life on MPs’ outside interests, using data from the British Election Study.

With public perceptions of politicians at a low level in general, it is important that evidence like that presented attempts to change attitudes of politicians.
