I am an ecological economist, writer and philosopher with very broad research interests including the application of evidence in public policy formulation, taxation economics, environmental economics, gender economics, and the history and philosophy of economics. After spending about 10 years as an ecologist/evolutionary biologist, mostly working for government conservation agencies and then working in the private sector, I went back to uni and studied economics and philosophy.
I’m currently working as a Research Economist with progressive think tank Per Capita. I’m work on ageing related public policy issues, gender economics and labour and industrial relations.
In addition to the Per Capita work I’m also working at the University of Melbourne with the Centre for Excellence in Biosecurity Risk Analysis (CEBRA) examining and comparing the efficacy of expert opinions and economic modelling for forecasting macroeconomic outcomes.
