Alice Pearson is a social anthropologist whose work centres on economics as a discipline.
At the Centre for the Study of Decision-Making Uncertainty she is working on an ESRC-funded project with Prof. David Tuckett, Prof. Laura Bear and Prof. Douglas Holmes. This is examining how the Bank of England assembles narrative information about economic processes in the UK under conditions of uncertainty, particularly surrounding Brexit. For this she is conducting fieldwork during 2019, particularly with the Bank's network of Agents in London and across the UK.
Alice's doctoral research at the University of Cambridge is based on 12 months ethnographic fieldwork of undergraduate economics education in Northern Europe. She holds an MPhil in Social Anthropology (University of Cambridge) and a BSc in Government and Economics (LSE).
