from Geografia Pty Ltd
As an Economist with Geografia, and previously Urbis, AEC Group and Marsden Jacob Associates – four national economics, finance and market research consultancy groups that provide advice to various public and private sector clients – I contribute to, and project manage, the research, analysis and presentation of many projects to assist with policy formulation. I have become familiar with vast amounts of historical and projected economic and demographic data, information and literature. I am proficient in economic modelling and data analysis, as well as stakeholder consultation. I have developed skills and experience in economic development, mining and resources, property markets, tourism and accommodation, agriculture, and social and environmental economics.
I also undertake my own economic and political research to further my understanding of a field that has intrigued me for over a decade now. Some of these areas include financial crises (the Great Depression, the Global Financial Crisis), monetary and fiscal policy, income inequality, globalisation, exchange rate regimes, political economics, international financial markets/ banking systems, international demographic trends, and international economic and political anomalies and history.
Research has been an ongoing priority for me. This can be seen in my academic history and early career at the University of Western Australia, researching and presenting on areas in international economics and government policy. The culmination of these years was the completion of my Honours Dissertation on the history of British trade policy and theory. This involved collecting, collating, analysing and presenting extensive qualitative and quantitative data and literature, some dating as far back as the 18th century. But my fascination with economics began years earlier at Wesley College, particularly the ideas behind Keynesian Economics. I also spent several months as an Economics Research Assistant for the UWA Economics Department. Here, I furthered these skills, contributing to projects relating to the WA mining sector, international trade and international migration.
