I am a Senior Policy Fellow and Fellow at the Australian National University (~advanced Assistant Professor in the US, or a Senior Lecturer at other Australian universities). My research interests lie at the intersection of development economics, international trade, and the environment.

I completed my Ph.D. in Economics at the ANU and subsequently held academic appointments at Stanford University and Dartmouth College. I worked in the Australian Government and global development before that and currently live on Canberra’s south side with my partner Jess—who works in government—and our daughters Fleur and Willa.
