Blake Heller works as a research analyst at the Education Innovation Laboratory at Harvard University. He writes: “The MSc Economics and Philosophy programme was pivotal in helping me develop the quantitative and analytical skill sets I needed to succeed as an applied researcher. In my current work, I use the econometric knowledge I gained at LSE daily. Even my training in game theory and rational choice has come in handy as I work with others to build models of strategic behaviour of students and teachers in response to our interventions. Not only did I learn a great deal, but I truly felt like I was a part of the community in the philosophy department. I met dozens of interesting, brilliant people among my peers and professors who helped me truly engage with the subject matter and get a great deal out of my brief time in London.”
