I am an Associate Professor (with tenure) in the School of Economics at the University of Sydney. My research interest is the Economics of Human Development. I study how parents, public policy and medical practice affect children's outcomes over the lifecourse. I am involved in several linked administrative data projects in Australia, financed through the National Health and Medical Research Council. Recently, I have entered an exciting new research area on Indigenous youth development. 

My work has been published in the Economic Journal, Journal of Health Economics, Journal of Applied Econometrics, Journal of Economic Behavior & Organization, and Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, among others. I am an Associate Editor of the Journal of Economic Behavior & Organization and Health Economics.

I held positions at Victoria University of Wellington and University of Melbourne, and I am a Visiting Scholar at The University of Chicago and a Research Fellow at the IZA Bonn. I was a University of Sydney SOAR Fellow and a ARC Discovery Early Career Fellow
