I am a Research Fellow at the Centre for Climate and Energy Policy, Crawford School of Public Policy. My current work under the Energy Transition Hub focuses on the economics and regulation of energy storage. I also contribute to research projects on economic diversification in coal communities and Australia’s 2050 emissions strategy.
I am an environmental and resources economist whose previous research has encompassed: regulatory design for multipurpose hydropower reservoirs; the design and application of water pricing; and the resilience of social-ecological systems under risks and uncertainty. I am an applied, inter-disciplinary researcher who is committed to integrating technical analysis into real-world decision-making and enabling positive social change.
I am a regular presenter on the Crawford School’s Policy Forum Pod. Previously, I was General Manager of the Food, Energy, Environment, Water Network and Managing Editor of the Global Water Forum. I have also worked as a consultant and practitioner on climate change, food security, water management, and biodiversity conservation in countries of the Lower Mekong Basin.
