Working at Frontier Economics has provided me with opportunities I never would have imagined. I joined as an intern, and then came back as a graduate. With the support of an incredible group of economists, I am now leading projects at the forefront of major decisions in water, liveability, biodiversity and more. My work has also opened other doors, including regularly speaking at Australian and international conferences, mentoring young economists, and co-founding an annual networking event for women in the water industry.

I’ve been at Frontier Economics since 2002 and joined after a 25+ year career at the University of Melbourne, lastly as the Professor of Law and Economics at Melbourne Business School. With a focus on the application of economics to legal disputes, I’ve had the opportunity to advise, or be the expert witness on, many of Australia’s most significant legal cases.

Economic rigour
A collegiate workplace

I’ve interned twice at Frontier Economics. After my first stint working on financial obligations to rehabilitate mines upon closure, I came back again to work with the team on the cost benefit analysis of extending regulations on a regionally significant lake in Victoria. I was able to apply concepts learnt in the classroom in a more practical setting and I enjoyed the supportive culture at the office which made me feel welcome and confident to complete the tasks at hand.
