Robert Woodhard

Rob works for lawyers, commercial clients and the public sector on competition, policy and strategy issues. 

He combines critical thinking with data science techniques to provide clear insights on complex problems. Rob understands each client’s issues by setting up simple frameworks based on economic theory. He is able to use a range of quantitative methods, from machine learning through to simpler descriptive analysis, to test and verify the right approach for clients to take. Recently, Rob has advised clients on a Phase 2 EC merger case, and on Skills policy for his hometown, Guernsey.

Rob has a keen interest in the spreading application of economics and data science into new areas. In particular, this includes the growing use of data and game theory to optimise team strategy in sport. He also holds degrees in economics from Cambridge and Warwick University.
