Elaine joined our team following her completion of postgraduate study in econometrics, and internships at both HoustonKemp and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO).
Elaine’s quantitative expertise underpins her contribution to the fast-growing role of analytics and economic modelling across much of our work. Elaine’s research interest – and the focus of her honours thesis – has involved the development of a complex simulation model to evaluate the implications of small probability events on the pricing of complex financial instruments.
Elaine has since played a key role in economic modelling of the hierarchical subcontracting relationship in the construction industry to support our policy advice in relation to this sector, and in the qualitative and quantitative evaluation of the market for coal tenements in Queensland.
At CSIRO, Elaine was involved in quantitative work to support the optimisation of supply chains and the development of a pipeline that deploys 3D brain image to a mixed reality environment.
