Biography

I received my PhD from Monash University in 1996, under the co-supervision of Ian Ward and Julian Teicher. Before entering academia, I worked as a research economist for the ANZ Banking Group. In the past three years, I served on the Board of Directors of the European Public Choice Society.

My areas of research span primary data analysis and meta-regression. I am particularly interested in the credibility of empirical research (economics, psychology, and medicine). I am currently working on labour market and economic development issues, largely within a political economy/public choice framework.
