Personal profile


I am a Research Assistant at the Centre for Environmental Economics and Policy/School of Agriculture and Environment (in Agricultural and Resource Economics). Since completing a Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Economics with first class Honours at UWA I have worked on projects for the Plant Biosecurity CRC and CRC for Honey Bee Products.

Prior to study and a career in research support I worked in the banking and finance industry for over 16 years. I also have a diverse skill set and background experience in agriculture in both Queensland and Western Australia in a range of industries such as horticulture, grains and dairy.


As a researcher who enjoys understanding and assessing the dynamics of biological and economic production systems my projects have focussed on bioeconomic modelling. Projects for the Plant Biosecurity CRC involved developing bioeconomic models and analysis of investment into pre-breeding for high priority biosecurity threats and past pest incursions affecting the grains and horticulture industries.

My recent work on a Honey Bee Product CRC project involved developing a state-wide survey for beekeepers, which provided much needed production data to value bee flora in native bush apiary sites in Western Australia. I have also assisted with the economic evaluation of dung beetles in livestock productions systems across Australia. 

Current projects

Recently, I have assisted with the WA coastal erosion hotspot assessment review collating site information in a comparable and useable structure in readiness to apply ranking criteria to determine future studies and potential protection of environmental and public assets.

I am now working on an ARC Discovery project to assess the value of information when applying different non-market valuation methods, and the trade-off between the cost of the approach and certainty of the value estimate.
