Personal profile


Veronique is a research economist at the Centre for Environmental Economics and Policy (University of Western Australia). Her research focuses on improving the management of our natural environment through multidisciplinary projects that combine social, environmental and economic information. She uses integrated bio-economic modelling to evaluate the impact of different land management strategies on people and the environment. She completed her PhD in 2016, in which she applied economic analysis to prescribed burning in the south-west of Western Australia. Veronique currently leads a project that focuses on applying economic analysis to the management of natural hazards to help decision makers get better value for money from public investments in hazard mitigation. Her research contributes to the development of tools that improve the management of our natural resources and reduce the risk of natural hazards to humans and the environment.
