Who am I?

I am a data and analytics professional with an interest in long-term, chronic stresses on society and the economy.

My career has focused on using economics and data science to support public policy responses (including the 2020 Black Summer bushfires and the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic impacts). I have experience leading analytics teams and deploying the IT infrastructure to enable their success.
