In brief

I am currently an Lecturer in Business Analytics at the University of Auckland.

My research interests involve network theory, corporate governance and computational social science.

Professionally, I have consulted with government and NGOs. I’ve also worked in the microsimulation and modeling division of Statistics Canada as an economist and programmer. Prior to this, I was a software developer at Research In Motion (now BlackBerry). I have also consulted with government and industry.
