George completed his PhD in Economics at the New School for Social Research. Since then, he has worked within the university sector, teaching and also working with organisations to improve their evidence-based decision-making.

He has authored several high-level government evaluation frameworks in areas as broad as disaster recovery and countering violent extremism. He has a particular passion for capability building so that practitioners can become more critical users of evidence to inform their work.

In his spare time George is an aerial gymnast, with a passion for silks, corde lisse, and static trapeze.
