Team: Economy & Finance

Christine joined NEF as a Researcher in January 2014. She is currently based in the Economy & Finance team, working on a number of research and advocacy projects to put meaningful banking reform on the UK agenda, as well as developing new workstreams on capital markets. She has also worked with various other teams at NEF including Wellbeing, Local Economies and the New Economy Organisers Network.

Prior to joining NEF, Christine was Head of Policy and Research at ShareAction, a charity which promotes responsible investment by pension funds and other major institutional investors. There, much of her research and campaigning work concerned the way in which unduly narrow interpretations of investors' legal duties were holding back responsible investment. This work was widely credited with triggering a landmark review by the Law Commission, as well as changing both government and opposition policy. Christine has also worked as a parliamentary researcher and holds a first class degree in Social and Political Sciences from the University of Cambridge.

Outside of work, Christine can often be found experimenting in the kitchen or playing cello with Harmony Sinfonia, her local amateur orchestra.
