Matthew Johnson

Analyst Intern

Start date with DI: June 2016

Where I am based: Bristol, UK

What I do: As an intern in the Research & Analysis team, my main function is to support projects on the data side. I work extensively in development finance, looking at resource flows into and between countries, and the disparity between the Sustainable Development Goals and current trends.

Previous experience: I am enrolled at the University of Bath, where I’m studying for a BSc in Economics. I hope to apply the lessons learnt from using data in an academic environment to my work at DI, and to return to my studies with a more practical understanding of economic data and theory.

Likes: Portsmouth FC, the coast, martial arts films

Dislikes: Three relegations after winning the FA cup
