I'm a young Australian economist, working at the Grattan Institute, a public policy think-tank in Melbourne, Australia. I don't hold any strong political views in any direction, though do hold strong views about policies.
Broadly interested in public sector economics, contracts, international monetary economics, and town planning. I'm more interested in these things when they're in countries that don't work very well.
I do most of my work in R, which I'm finding to be amazingly versatile. If I were to give advice to my former self, it would be "do more stats/computer science courses, and become an R guru".
