    Stacey Hughes Associate Director

    Stacey Hughes

    Associate Director
    In her own words, Stacey is a self-confessed adrenaline junkie/couch potato in her spare time. A contradiction? Very much so. She gets her adrenaline fix from mountain biking and is often found at Cannock Chase, Forest of Dean or on a plane with her bike jetting off to tackle some drier trails. Conversely, she also hugely enjoys relaxing with some good home-made food and a boxset – particularly in the winter months.

    He is mostly involved in research in areas related to small business, enterprise, skills and the labour market, at regional and national levels. In his spare time, he enjoys cinema, cooking (badly), and reading books and comics.

    Jack Harper

    Research Manager

    As a self confessed foodie Jack just can’t get enough of tasting little by little different dishes and cuisines. When not lost in a supermarket he substitutes his passion for cooking to watch Aston Villa, where he has had a season ticket for over 10 years, though some might say 10 years too long. Either way as a keen traveller Jack’s master plan is to someday go with the flow and travel all around the world. Now guess how many song titles feature in that.

    Philip Roe

    Research Director

    Philip is an experienced researcher with specialist interests including the economy, business, the labour market and skills. He has obtained three degrees from UK universities but so long ago that he can’t remember which ones. His theoretical role models are George Best, Joe Pesci in ‘Goodfellas’ and Lord Lucan. In practice, his main relaxation is sitting in a comfortable chair thinking about things (such as the limitations of the Theory of General Relativity, how much GDP growth would be stimulated by a cut in VAT to 15% and whether David Moyes was the right choice for Manchester United). In 2011 he won the Welcome Break award for most fried breakfasts eaten in motorway service stations.
