About DR. Matheson
Jesse Matheson Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in the Department of Economics at the University of Sheffield. He has previously taught at the University of Leicester and the University of Calgary. Jesse studied economics in Canada at the University of Calgary (BA, PhD) and Queen’s University (MA), before moving to the UK in 2011. In 2015 he was a visiting scholar at Cornell University. Jesse’s work covers topics in public, labour and health economics. Previous work considers the effectiveness of policy interventions that target vulnerable populations. This includes a large-scale randomised field study in policing domestic violence. He has also published research on the effect of social and neighbourhood infrastructure on individual decisions in the context of smoking, marriage, and raising children. Jesse’s recent research explores the economic determinants, and consequences, of the spatial distribution of labour within urban settings. Of particular interest is how the post-pandemic rise in remote working is shifting economic activity and changing cities.
