I’m an applied economist with a talent for answering tough policy questions using data.

How much does the world spend on violence?

How can government rebuild the social contract with its citizens through the budget?

Can we estimate which road infrastructure will be most impacted by climate change before it’s built?

Have served as an economic advisor in government, the private sector and the not-for-profit sector. Former tax modeller in the Australian Treasury, researcher at the Asian Development Bank and economic advisor in the Myanmar Parliament (CV here).

I’m also a published researcher who is comfortable working across sectors and am genuinely multidisciplinary, having led research on a wide variety of issues including; tax policy, road engineering, international trade, the global costs of violence and fiscal decentralization (see here).

Currently I’m an independent consultant based in Sydney, Australia.
