Profile

I am a research fellow at the Melbourne Institute: Applied Economic & Social Research at the University of Melbourne.

My research interest is driven by how public policy improves the lives of vulnerable and disadvantaged populations. My work has focused on understanding some of the mechanisms of human capital formation, in particular associated to health, child development and employment.
