I have been lecturing at the University of Adelaide since 2010.

I have a Graduate Certificate in Education (Higher Education) from the University of Adelaide, and am actively involved in Faculty and University-wide Learning and Teaching innitiatives.

My research interests are in health economics, and more generally, in applied microeconomics. 

In particular:

  • Health and lifestyle choices
  • Chronic health conditions
  • Intertemporal choice
