Cloda Jenkins is Professor (Teaching), Careers Tutor in the Department of Economics at UCL and leads our advisory work building on her long career as an economic consultant to private and public sector organisations. Her areas of interest are regulation and competition economics, with a particular focus on energy markets. Prior to joining UCL she worked for over fifteen years as an economic consultant and at the UK energy regulator. She continues to provide expert advice and training to regulators.

Cloda’s economics expertise is in the economics of markets, considering how to make markets work more effectively and how best to design and implement government interventions when needed. In higher education she is passionate about ensuring that students develop skills alongside knowledge as part of their degree experience and that education policies and practices are informed by the student voice and student partnership opportunities. Her education research, linked to her interest in employability, is focused on skill development, active learning, assessment design and the value of group work.

She is Lead Tutor for our FCDO and Cabinet Office training and has delivered numerous courses on economics for non-economists, regulation economics and competition economics. As Department Careers Tutor Cloda takes the time to discuss opportunities and challenges with students and works closely with other parts of the institution, including UCL Careers and the Connected Curriculum Personal Tutoring Working Group, to ensure students have appropriate support at the start of their career journey.

Cloda is a Senior Fellow of the HEA and Assessor for HEA Fellowships at UCL. She is a member of the EEA Education Committee, member of the Economics Network Executive Group and a contributor to the CORE curriculum.
