Portrait of Mark Miller

Mark’s research focuses on how the international community engages on questions of public finance to promote development and how it could play that role more effectively in future.

Previously, Mark spent three years in the Budget Department of the Malawian government working as a senior economist in the budget department and latterly as a DFID-financed technical adviser.
