Personal profile

Research interests

The major topic of my research is the analysis of risk on economic welfare using applied microeconomic theory and economic experiments. I examine how risk affects individual decisions as well as decisions in a group context from an informational and behavioural perspective. My research intersects with environmental economics through my focus on environmental risks such as natural disasters and climate change. Most notably, I have research experience in insurance economics specialising in the analysis of risk transfer instruments for natural disaster risks and the impact on economic welfare, as well as research experience in development economics.


Statement for HDR students

I am interested in supervising topics in Economics that focus on how individuals respond to risk and information through their behaviour and decision making. I am particularly interested in examining the welfare impacts of decisions made under the uncertainty of climate change risk.
