I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow and Lecturer in the Department of Economics at Dartmouth College. My primary fields are development economics and environmental economics. My current research aims to help align (a) feeding the world, (b) eradicating extreme poverty, and (c) avoiding catastrophic climate change.

I completed my PhD in Economics at the Australian National University and a subsequent postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford University. Prior to and during my doctoral study I worked in the Australian Government—mostly on fiscal, education, and evaluation policy—and global development.

I will return home to Canberra and the ANU later this year as a Fellow/Senior Policy Fellow (~adv. AP in the U.S.) at the Development Policy Centre in the Crawford School of Public Policy.
