Currently Head of Australia Macroeconomics and Head of Asia Pacific Macro Consulting for BIS Oxford Economics. I lead a team of economists that produce BIS Oxford Economics' Australia Macro Service, which provides clients with forecasts and analysis for Australia and New Zealand. As part of this service I present the Australia and global outlook to clients and media in the region. I also lead the Asia-Pacific macro consulting team, and have worked on a number of projects including estimating and forecasting household income by income band, enhancing and expanding the company’s modelling of the energy sector, and taking a leading role in developing methodologies for financial institution stress testing scenarios.
I have a degree in economics from the University of Cambridge and an MSc in Economics from the London School of Economics, which I passed with distinction. Prior to joining Oxford Economics I completed my PhD in Economics at the University of Oxford, where my thesis modelled the impact of World War I on Britain’s position in the global economy.
