Chris initally studied human geography at the University of Leicester, but found the economics options courses more relevant to his interests causing him to switch to a degree in mathematics and economics at the University of Aberdeen. After completing his undergraduate degree he worked as an assistant economist (Government Economic Service) on the measurement of capital stock for national accounts at the Office for National Statistics. He then went to the LSE to study mathematics. Whilst there he won an Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) 1+3 studentship.
