Robin Hsieh

DPhil in Public Policy student (2019)

Prior to joining the Blavatnik School I worked at the Bank of England in the area of international banks supervision and the policy unit for EU withdrawal. Before that, I worked as a data analyst at Fitch Solutions and interned at the Global Public Policy Institute and the Boston Consulting Group.

Originally from Germany and Taiwan, I hold a bachelor's from the University of St Gallen and a master's in international political economy with distinction from the London School of Economics. While at the Bank of England I also completed a postgraduate diploma in central banking and financial regulation from the University of Warwick.

My research interests lie in the political economy of financial regulation and central banking and how technocratic areas of policymaking are (de-)politicised. At the Blavatnik School I investigate this within the Banklash research project on banks, popular backlash and the post-crisis politics of financial regulation.
