I am a Research Fellow in Economics at the Centre for Transformative Innovation at Swinburne University of Technology with an interest in evaluating government policy from a historical and modern perspective.
My work combines rigorous econometrics, historical insights and solid economic theory to understand the dynamics of policies from both a historical and modern perspective. My recent research interests explore issues on racial segregation, regional housing affordability, and the value of heritage housing.
I work with policymakers to evaluate the impact of government programs. A recent project included evaluating Austrade's tailored service using quasi-experimental methods and measuring its impact on exports and other measures of firm performance. I am currently working on developing a framework to explore the relationship between international trademarking activity and it's link to global trade.
