I am interested in sustainable economic development, innovation and applying methodologies that recognise the economy as a complex adaptive system and the philosophy surrounding such methodologies.
Currently, I am working at the Energy Economics and Management Group (EEMG) in the University of Queensland on a feasibility study for a hybrid solar thermal-gas generator at the Collinsville Energy Park, Queensland, Australia.
Previously at the EEMG , I was the lead author on a project titled ‘Analysis of institutional adaptability to redress electricity infrastructure vulnerability due to climate change’ for the National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility (NCCARF) and a researcher on a project called ‘Market and economic modelling of the impacts of distributed energy‘ for the CSIRO Intelligent Grid Research Cluster (iGrid) .
Prior to joining the EEMG, I completed my PhD at the University of Queensland titled ‘Adaptive Interactive Expectations: Dynamically Modelling Profit Expectations‘ and masters at Griffith University titled ‘An Evaluation of Policies to Reduce Fiscal Pressure Induced by Population Ageing in Australia‘.
