Hello. My name is Max Nathan. I work at the London School of Economics, where I’m based in the Spatial Economics Research Centre. I’m also a Senior Research Fellow at the National Institute of Economic and Social Research. I completed an urban policy and spatial economics PhD in LSE’s Geography Department in Autumn 2011.
I co-founded the Centre for Cities think tank, and sit on the Centre’s Research Advisory Board. I’m an Associate of the Centre for London and an Associate Fellow at the Institute for Public Policy Research.
I’ve also worked at the Department of Communities and Local Government as an external Policy Adviser, covering issues like localism, regeneration, innovation and economic development.
