Becky is a highly experienced economist with particular expertise in the in fields of regulatory economics, spectrum policy and competition analysis. During her career Becky has worked for regulatory bodies, consultancies and private companies, giving her a well-rounded understanding of how economic analysis can best be used to inform effective decision making.
Becky was most recently an Economic Director at Ofcom, where she played a leading role in the development of Ofcom’s approach to allowing market forces to influence spectrum policy decisions. Her work spanned the full range of Ofcom’s spectrum activities from major policy areas, such as the liberalisation of mobile spectrum, to the day-to-day assignment of licences for smaller users. This work allowed Becky to develop a full appreciation of when and how markets can inform decisions but also, equally as importantly, of when they are likely to fail and how regulators should respond to this.
