Principal at Aither

Melbourne, Australia

About Me

Simon combines a strong background in policy and quantitative expertise to deliver applied research into environmental, resource, agricultural and trade issues. Simon is passionate about applying mathematical methods to complex problems to ask questions beyond the obvious.

An economist by training, Simon takes a collaborative and multidisciplinary approach to analysis. Simon has 10 years’ experience communicating sometimes technical results in a clear and accessible manner.

Before joining Aither, Simon was a Senior Economist at the Productivity Commission. He played a key role in a number of major inquiries – including the workplace relations framework, industry assistance for greenhouse gas mitigation policies, and market mechanisms for recovering environmental water.

Simon completed his PhD with the Centre for Water Policy and Management while working at the Productivity Commission. For his thesis, Simon developed a number of practical tools to improve the management of environmental water, through identifying better institutions and management strategies.

Simon has also worked at the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences (ABARES), where he led the analysis of the impacts of the Australian Government’s water buyback program.
