Jonathan graduated with a BCom (Hons) in Economics from the University of Malta, and an MSc (with Distinction) in Economics from the University of Edinburgh. Before joining the PhD Programme he worked in London as an industry analyst specialising in various global commodity markets.
Jonathan’s research interests are currently focussed on understanding the behaviour of the media and its overall impact on economic activity. Of particular interest is the way in which information is reported in the news, and how such information may influence the actions of economic agents with imperfect knowledge.
