Jonathan Timmis

Welcome to my website!

I am a research economist at the OECD, Productivity and Business Dynamics Division. I'm also an External Affiliate of University of Nottingham's research centre on Globalisation and Economic Policy, an Affiliate of CESifo's Digitalisation Research Group, a Fellow of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries and have in the past been a Junior Fellow of the Royal Economic Society and a Fellow of the Overseas Development Institute.

I research the areas of digitalisation and technological change, firm productivity and globalisation. My research has covered the effects of technology diffusion on trade and firm performance and the implications of changes in the structure of trade networks for firms. Recently I have been working on the impacts of automation and cloud computing, how technology affects firm organisation and their workers, and how concentration and M&As relate to innovation diffusion and the digital transformation.

My research has been presented at various conferences including: CESIfo, European Trade Study Group, NBER Summer Institute and the Royal Economic Society, and has recently featured in the Economist special report on competition.

I completed a PhD in Economics (without corrections) at the University of Nottingham in 2015, under the supervision of Prof. Richard Kneller (University of Nottingham) and Prof. Daniel Bernhofen (now at American University).
