Currently Chief Economist for BIS Oxford Economics. I lead the team that is responsible for the BIS Oxford Economics subscription service, which provides clients with detailed analysis of Australia's economy, the construction and mining sectors, and residential and commercial property markets, as well as coverage of the construction sector in the major economies in Asia-Pacific. I regularly present the Australia, New Zealand and global outlook to clients across the region, and oversee the research and development program undertaken by the subscriptions teams based in Sydney and Melbourne. I also takes a leading role in our consulting business and have been involved in a range of projects including infrastructure asset transactions due diligence, scenario analysis for use in stress testing exercises and strategy planning, and the development of a range of quantitative macroeconomic models that have been used for forecasting, policy impact analysis, and market sizing.
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.
