Martin McCarthy

Non-stipendiary Lecturer in Economics


I did my undergraduate degree at the University of Sydney, where I studied Economics and Mathematics. I then worked as an economist at the Reserve Bank of Australia and the Australian Treasury. In these roles I worked on a variety of topics, including financial regulation, macroeconomic forecasting, and tax policy. I then returned to university to complete a Master of Philosophy in Economics at Oxford. I am currently doing a Doctor of Philosophy in Economics at Oxford.


In 2020-21, I am tutoring Prelims Microeconomics, Econometrics and Environmental Economics.


My doctoral research focusses on the taxation of businesses. However, I also have a strong interest on economic measurement and forecasting.
