Daniel Muir is a Research Economist (Fellow) at IES. His main research interests include unemployment and welfare, low pay, and skill demand and utilisation.

During his economics studies, Dan developed a range of quantitative skills to evaluate public policy, and built a detailed understanding of issues relating to education and the labour market.

Since joining IES in September 2021, he has worked across a wide range of public policy and consultancy projects. These include working with raw job vacancy data for several uses, the impact and economic evaluations of a government-funded trial of employment support aimed at individuals with disabilities and long-term health conditions, and analysis of the potential of quality part-time employment to lift certain groups out of poverty.
