Biography

“Working from home has come of age – what was once derided as ‘shirking from home’ is now lauded as ‘personal thought time.'” – Nicholas Bloom

***

Nicholas Bloom is the William Eberle Professor of Economics at Stanford University and a professor, by courtesy, at the Graduate School of Business at Stanford University. He is also the co-director of the Productivity, Innovation and Entrepreneurship program at the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), and a fellow of the Centre for Economic Performance and the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research.

Professor Bloom received his undergraduate degree from Cambridge, his masters degree from Oxford University, and his PhD from University College London. While completing his PhD, he worked part-time at the Institute for Fiscal Studies, a London-based tax think tank. After completing his PhD, Bloom worked as a business tax policy advisor to the UK Treasury, and then joined McKinsey & Company as a management consultant. In 2003, he moved to the London School of Economics to focus on research, before joining Stanford University in 2005.

Professor Bloom’s research focuses on measuring and explaining management practices. He has been working with McKinsey & Company as part of a long-run effort to collect management data from over 10,000 firms across industries and countries. The aim is to build an empirical basis for understanding what factors drive differences in management practices across regions, industries and countries, and how this determines firm and national performance. More recently, he has also been working with Accenture on running management experiments. He also studies how large uncertainty shocks — such as credit crunches, the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the Cuban Missile crisis — impact the US economy, for which he won the Frisch Medal in 2010.
