Welcome

I am a Professor of Economics at the University of Sydney. My research addresses three broad themes:

(i) the measurement of inequality, poverty and welfare
(ii) the impact of public policies on household economic well-being
(iii) the effect of economic shocks on the dynamic behaviour of families

My research draws on microeconomic models of individual and household behaviour combined with microeconometric methods.

My research has been published in journals such as Econometrica, Review of Economics and Statistics, Journal of Business and Economic Statistics, Journal of Public Economics, Econometrics Journal, American Journal of Agricultural Economics, Review of Income and Wealth, Canadian Journal of Economics and The Economic Record.
